Not a good resumé- but still a nice modelling subject.

Actually now that I think of it the Wyvern's record sounds a lot like my flight record during my "vacation" in SE Asia a few years back.,,.

It did a little better than the Vixen which had "only" 38% loss rate.
And compared to the Scimitar, well, please find out!
But this was a prop plane.
Thank you Bruno.

ps for recolorist you have infinite what-ifs, like the SEA scheme for Vietnam like the Skyrider (not a request) ;-)

Don't forget the F7u Cutlass. Didn't they call it the "Ensign Killer "?

For carrier operations during the 50s that record is not as bad as it first sounds. Especially considering when they first went aboard a carrier the engines would flame out on launch. and they also served in combat during the Suez crisis.

One of the flame-out crashes you refer to saw the pilot make history- the first ever ejection from a submerged aircraft! True story!

There is a piece of footage showing a Scimitar overrunning the landing strip on the carrier and crashing in the sea. The pilot did not get out however. Eerie
