I must say it... The british were unique when building aircraft back then. Look at the Avro Vulcan and the Sea Vixen... nothing was comparable to them in terms of design, quite vanguardist. :D

the sea vixen insignia on the tail fin ( a fist with wings) is of 899 squadron fleet air arm, and the 'E' is for HMS Eagle, i fired loads of them including 134 off the bow capult HMS Eagle between my time onboard 1966-1969, proud to have been part of something special, 4 boiler rooms, 4 engine rooms steam turbines 150 SHP 30 knots no prob nearly 3000 crew, 48 aircraft, and we had RUM, sailed with her from the Artic - to Australia, a great and happy ship skipper was Capt'n Pope R.N.

Nice to see the old bird coming home (I worked on the 766 Squadron for a few years at Yeovilton)

Served on HMS Victorious in the 60s as the F4 Phantom was coming on stream and as a C.A.P. AIRCRAFT the vixen was untouchable turning inside any comparable jet aircraft

At moment 2:01, the aircraft engaged a (genuine) "super advanced stealth mode" & phased-out momentarily into a blur, but bcoz owing much to the concept what's still in its infancy. The relevant capacitors that power the induction coils that in turn go to generate EM field for phase-shifting light did not hold-up to expectation.
These, while tho' ar'nt evn a new development, something that's been similarly attempted, tried & tested countless times thru-out the world by Superpower Countries from since the 'Philadelphia Experiment' of renown undertaken by the US Navy. None was known to have truly perfected it to the effect of actually having it employed or applied in active to any type of defense asset or if in fact it already was deployed, but in total secrecy. But the current so-called stealth, that's but confined to only so much deceiving radar detection & strictly not true "invisibility", what not even dedicated F-35 Lightning, -22 Raptor, -117 NightHawk, B-2 Spirit, the Sukhoi T-50 PAK-FA, Chengdu J-20 nor J-31 had, in varying levels respectively are true invisibility. Welcome to the future people, it's already here, where sci-fi Star Trek's Klingon & Romulan type "Cloaking (Invisibility) Device" is now a thing of reality.
He-He-He.., the abuv was a joke. It's just a case of the photographer changing capture range-depth & probably a lag from the auto focus facility emerged.

Cool plane. Although I'm not a fan of the offset cockpit. I love good symetry.

First flight in 1951 and introduced in 1959. Crazy but this plane doesn’t look or fly like an old plane.

Hi, I love the Vixen, can someone kindly please tell me - the tanks on top of the wings, look as though they follow the camber of the wing, are they permanently fixed to the wing??

It looks modern and other worldly. Way ahead of its time in appearance. Love this impressive aircraft.
