Supermarine Scimitar


today we blow some more dust off the archives and take a look at the Supermarine Scimitar, an often overlooked Naval aircraft built consequently in small numbers, but if you read the Air Pictorial series of the 1950's can be traced through a direct line of development from the Spitfire through laminar flow wings on the Spiteful, to the Attacker and Swift.
