LAST ONE LEFT!
Initially developed to meet a WW2-era requirement, this aircraft entered service powered by a coupled turboprop engine that could output almost 3,000 shp.
The carrier-based, anti-submarine warfare aircraft features a mid-wing monoplane configuration with a tricycle undercarriage and two contra-rotating propellers.
You get to see these features in the video below, which features the last known airworthy Fairey Gannet in action.
The British ASW plane can be seen starting her Armstrong Siddeley Double Mamba turboprop engines before taking off elegantly at the Menomonie Air Show in 2017.
