The FD.2 was originally designed to investigate problems at subsonic speeds. First flown in 6 October 1954, it proved to have an exceptional performance and 10 March 1956 (piloted by Peter Twiss) set a new world speed record at 1132 m.p.h. - some 310 m.p.h. fasted than the previous record. The hinged nose, or droop snoot, enabled the pilot to have an improved view when landing and taxying and has been emulated in the Concorde. WG774 was later rebuilt and used as part of the Concorde development programme.
