Gannet AEW3, Royal Navy
The prototype of the Fairey Gannet made its first flight in 1949 and was designed for Anti Submarine Warfare. The aircraft had foldable wings to save space when operating from aircraft carriers. In the static park of the airshow at Yeovilton, this XL497/760 could be seen and photgraphed.
