Bristol 188 (XF926) at the RAF Museum, Cosford

Built mainly of stainless steel, this aircraft was designed to investigate the effects of heat on aircraft structures at very high speeds.
To protect the pilot against heat build-up a special cockpit refrigeration system was installed.
Nicknamed "Flaming Pencil", only two Bristol 188s ever flew, a third being used for ground tests
This aircraft (XF926) was flown for the first time by Bristol test pilot Godfrey Auty on 29 April 1963
