Default The British flying wing

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.

Aviação em Floripa: Armstrong Whitworth A.W.52

I believe it was a flying test bed for a passenger carrying feasibility study. It had nothing much to do with the war effort. However, the world's first jet powered flying wing was by the Horten brothers. They were way ahead of their time in flying wing design.
