I share with you some photos, including a rare photo with markings of the Royal Air Force, of the experimental airplane Armstrong Whitworth AW-52. If the plane had entered service during World War II would have helped to anticipate the end of the conflict? Visit the link below, see the photos and answer on this question.

The AW52 was in no danger of entering WW2. Design of a proposed flying wing airliner had begun after WW2 had ended and resulted in the AW52, which was not a warplane, but a scale flying testbed, albeit shortlisted as a potential mailplane. The protoype was tested by the Royal Aircraft Establishment thus carried military markings.

Other flying wings had been tested by theRAF prior to WW2, such as Hill's 'Pterodactyl' series, but the Air Ministry weren't interested.
