Here is a nice album. I'm not sure if it's been posted here before. It's well worth a look, there are 29 pages of very good quality photos.

Had to use Wikipedia to find that one: A Handley Page Manx.

The H.P. 75 Manx was a British experimental aircraft designed by Handley Page that flew test flights in the early 1940s. It was notable for its unconventional design characteristics, being a twin-engine tailless design of pusher configuration.

No one will be interested in this series of photos whatsoever.
