Rare British Naval Jet Fighter Comes to ESAM GLENVILLE – The Empire State Aerosciences Museum is proud to announce the acquisition of an extremely rare jet fighter. British authorities at the Fleet Air Arm Museum, Yeovilton, England, have agreed to the transfer of one of only three remaining Supermarine Scimitar F.1 strike fighters from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to the care of ESAM. Powered by two Rolls-Royce Avon 202 un-reheated turbojets, each of 11,250 lbs. thrust, the Scimitar was supersonic in a shallow dive. Serving only with the Royal Navy-- Nos. 700, 736, 800, 803, 804, 807 Squadrons and the Fleet Requirements Unit—the Scimitar was soon overtaken, technically, by other jets. It was withdrawn from frontline service in 1966. ESAM’s example is one of just three survivors from a production run of 76 (the other two aircraft are both in museums in England), so it represents a rare chance to see an early generation jet fighter.
