Manufacturer : De Havilland
Production Began : 1951

Sea Vixen

The de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen was a twin boom, two seat jet fighter of the Fleet Air Arm during the 1950s1960s, originally known as the DH.110, an aircraft designed for both the Royal Air Force and Fleet Air Arm (FAA). The de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen was designed as an all-weather, missile-armed, high-speed jet fighter. The Royal navy required a fighter to replace the aging De Havilland Sea Venom and the Fleet Air Arm took the Sea Vixen, but the Royal Air Force did not, instead opting for its competitor the Gloster Javelin. The first De Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen prototype first flew on 26 September 1951 piloted by WW2 ace John Cunningham. In 1952 tragedy struck while the aircraft was being demonstrated at the Farnborough Airshow on 6th September 1952. Following a display by a Sea Vixen on its ability to break the sound barrier, it disintegrated, killing 31 people, including the aircraft's two crew: test pilot and record breaker John Derry and Tony Richards.
