A highly unusual sight in a nursery car-park!
The Folland Gnat was an exceptionally small, swept-wing British subsonic jet trainer and light fighter aircraft originally developed for the Royal Air Force. It was designed by W. E. W. Petter (formerly of Westland Aircraft and English Electric) and first flew in 1955. Its design was such that it could be built without specialised tools, hence by countries that were not necessarily highly industrialised. Although never used as a fighter by the Royal Air Force (RAF), the "Gnat T.1" trainer variant was widely used, and as the mount for the RAF Red Arrows aerobatic team, the Gnat became a national icon.
