The one aircraft Eric Brown was denied that really riled him was the Miles M52. He was furious about that. It would almost certainly have gained the first Mach 1 record and was, through a misunderstanding, designed to go not for a mere Mach 1 but for 1000 mph, which a scale model suggested was imminently realisable. The transfer of aeronautical supremacy to the USA starts there, TSR2, Concorde, etc notwithstanding.
