Good photo, dramatically lighted. The two silhouetted Land-Rovers hiding the lights aids the picture a lot. What were those double-tailed planes named again? Something with Sea...perhaps? Regards, Stein.

They look like "Sea Vampires" or "Sea Venoms" (more likely the latter) but not "Sea Vixens" (wrong tail), Stein.
I agree a very dramatically lit and interesting picture, Ceylon. (Thumb)

Thanks Kris. Venoms, yes http://www.neam.co.uk/venom.html . In the year this picture was taken I would have known. This little blue "all the world's aircraft" book was a pocket bible; I remember the smell of it's glossy pages... Regards, Stein.

I think I've still got mine somewhere, Stein.
The bible for the aspiring teenage jet jockeys of the 50s and early 60s.
