The Happy Prince Featured Barry Print

The Happy Prince

The Happy Prince - by Oscar Wilde. In a town where a lot of poor people are suffering, a lonely swallow meets the statue of the late "Happy Prince", who had lived in a palace where sorrow isn't allowed to enter. Viewing people suffering in poverty from high above, Prince asks the swallow to take the ruby from his hilt, the sapphires from his eyes, and the golden leaf covering his body to give to the poor

General Aircraft GAL.56 - 01 TS507 Featured Barry Print

General Aircraft GAL.56 - 01 TS507

General Aircraft GAL.56 - 01 TS507, Medium V at the 1947 Radlett SBAC show, 12-13 September 1947. GAL.56 - 01 TS507 Also known as the "Medium-V" version, had a constant 33.5 deg wing sweep-back at the leading edge, 28.4 deg at quarter chord. On 13 November 1944, Robert Kronfeld piloted the first flight at Farnborough, towed by an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley.. TS507 conducted numerous flights from RAF Dunholme Lodge and RAF Wittering, variously towed by a Whitley, Supermarine Spitfire, or a Handley Page Halifax. After May 1945, research flights continued at Farnborough, and in August 1947 it was transferred to the GAL Flight Test Department at Lasham Airfield, where the GAL.56 - 03 and GAL.56 - 04 were already employed for trials under contract to the Air Ministry.
Its flying characteristics proved so bad that test pilot Capt. Eric "Winkle" Brown RN later described it as the most difficult aircraft he ever flew, out of the many hundreds of types that he tested. On 12 February 1948, the TS507 was conducting a stalling trial after being towed to 10,000 ft by a Halifax. The pilot, Robert Kronfeld, initiated a stall that progressed into an uncontrollable dive that caused both crew to lose consciousness. The observer, Barry MacGowan, awoke to find that the aircraft was level but inverted. He baled out successfully at low level, but Kronfeld died in the crash at Lower Froyle, near Lasham
