I've seen this picture somewhere recently. though I can't remember where. It's amazing what went on down there during the war years.

After flights on the air show circuit, NX611 had flown into Squires Gate, Blackpool in 1971 and in April 1972 was put up for auction as shown in the pic below. It did not reach it's reserve price and some time later it was removed to become the gate guardian at RAF Scampton.

Yes, the bubble cockpit was fitted for better vision when landing on carriers.
