Havilland DH.103 Hornet Havilland DH.103 Hornet Havilland DH.103 Hornet Havilland DH.103 H

Based on the success of the Mosquito, design of the DH.103 single-seat twin-engined fighter was undertaken at Hatfield as a private venture during 1942 and prototypes were ordered in June 1943 Intended for very long range operation in the South Pacific area, the DH.103 was powered by two 2,030 hp Merlin 130/131 (handed) engines and armed with four 20-mm can-non. First of two prototypes (unarmed) flown July 28, 1944 (initially with two Merlin 130s); second prototype carried armament and 200-Imp gal (910-1) underwing drop tanks. Initial production flight February 1, 1945, but quantity deliveries (to equip No 64 Squadron initially) too late for combat use.

 

De Havilland Sea Hornet: Two Hornets are converted during 1944-45 as carrier-based long-range fighter proto-types. First flown April 19, 1945. Third prototype, flown post-war, followed by production Sea Hornet F Mk 20sandNFMk21s.

The Hornet was considered the fastest operational twin propeller-driven aircraft ever flown by any of the world's air arms and the fastest wooden aircraft ever built.
