Sorry to be slow back on this, I've been sleeping!!!!

Adrian is correct, the Bristol Blenheim light bomber.

Based on an aircraft built for media magnate Lord Rorthermere which turned out to be significantly faster than any RAF fighter around at the time.

You are up sir!!!

Next question:-

1) Two seat.

2) Biplane.

3) Designed for an environment in which it was never used.

4) Shared a particular ability with another more well known aircraft produced by the same company.

Best Regards,
=Adrian=

This is not really fair, as Ernie P. already answered it: The Fiesler Fi 167.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fieseler_Fi_167

If Ernie wants, he can go ahead and take this and run with the next question.

JohnnyS; Let's wait until Adrian confirms that's the right answer. I know the Fieseler seems to meet all the requirements; but there are often multiple correct answers. If it is, you go ahead. Besides, I'm trying to lay back a bit. I don't want folks to get tired of my questions. Thanks; Ernie P.

Don't sweat the small stuff, Adrian; I was going to sit back and see if any one caught it. JohnnyS did, so I'll let him run with the next question. But, if he doesn't post anything by this evening, I'll post the next question. Thanks; Ernie P.

Thanks, Ernie P!

OK, let's see if I can come up with something interesting.

1. It was a test aircraft. Only one was built, but it was flown a LOT by many interesting people.

2. The next aircraft in the series was much faster. MUCH faster!

3. Developed using parts from different Beech aircraft models.

4. Twin engined.

No guesses yet? Sad.

1. It was a test aircraft. Only one was built, but it was flown a LOT by many interesting people.

2. The next aircraft in the series was much faster. MUCH faster!

3. Developed using parts from different Beech aircraft models.

4. Twin engined.

5. Although jet powered, top speed was only 180 mph.

6. At one point, a digital fly-by-wire control system was installed on the aircraft and it's designation was changed from (name)A to (name)B.

7. First flight in 1957, retired in 1981.

8. Go back and re-read clue #2: The next aircraft in the series still holds records for speed.
