de Havilland Venom prototype VV612
de Havilland Venom prototype VV612. The prototype Venom F.1 was produced by fitting moderately swept wings on the fuselage and tail of a Vampire FB.5 whilst on the production line. Of note are the solid metal skinned canopy, due to introducing cockpit pressurisation and outer wings fitted with tufts to investigate high speed flow over the outer wings. Date: 1949

A large Bude light in Trafalgar Square. Invented by Sir Goldsworthy Gurney and patented in 1839, the light worked by introducing oxygen gas into the middle of a standard oil lamp flame. The unburned carbon in the oil flame burned incredibly brightly and an intense, white light was produced from the weak, yellow flame of the oil lamp. A single Bude light was used to light Gurney's castle (in Bude, Cornwall) using a set of prisms and reflectors
