    F.I.D.O. was not a dog but the Fog Investigation and Dispersal Operation - means of evaporating fog from airfield runways to allow WW2 bombers to land.

    The device consisted of two pipelines situated along both sides of the runway and through which a fuel (usually the petrol from the airfield's own fuel dump) was pumped along and then out through burner jets positioned at intervals along the pipelines. The vapours were lit from a series of burners, producing walls of flame. The FIDO installation usually stored its fuel in four circular upright tanks built at the edge of the airfield with a low brick bund wall in case of leakage. The tanks were usually encased in ordinary brickwork as protection from bomb splinters or cannon fire. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fog_In...rsal_Operation

    Roland Beamont was an outstanding WWII fighter pilot who went on to become an equally outstanding test pilot with his career culminating in testing the ultra advance TSR2 supersonic bomber.

    It's maiden flight was on 27th September 1964 from the A & AEE (Aeroplane & Armament Experimental Establishment) at Boscombe Down airfield. Where, because of its potential, it became affectionately known as Tear Arse Two.

    However, it never advanced beyond the prototype due to Government cuts and development of missiles as a nuclear deterent

    Probably the only aircraft to have been shot down by an I.C.B.M.

    True but so far no sign of Flying Penguin Beers which would be perfect for those who participated in our Caproni Round the World flight to raise money for the first Lend Lease pilot to visit Origins.
    I will post a pic or two for those who joined after that event.
