Short Seamew aircraft photo (No.64)

Even weirder looking than the Gannet was this the Short Seamew. It was designed for the Royal Navy and anti-submarine duties. Unusually the Seamew had fixed undercarriage! A mere 19 examples were built and never entered service - the Gannet entering service instead.

I am always on the look-out for fab old photos like this Short Seamew image shown above. If you have any photographs that you think would fit in well here, please please get in touch. Photos of aircraft, whether military or civilian, of other Seamews or different Shorts, are all keenly sought, thanks! So long as it has an aviation theme to it, I'll put it on here. Please drop me a line via the contact page if you have anything suitable to share. The rest of Dave's airplane photographs from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and the 1970s can be found on this page.
