My thanks to Roger Dunn and the MOD for supplying these images.Wikipedia for text.

Britain's entry in the heavily-armed twin engined fighter sweepstakes was the Westland Whirlwind. Unfortunately Inadequate engines lead to the Whirlwind only being used by two squadrons of the RAF, Nos. 137 and 263, and by December 1943 the Whirlwind was withdrawn from service.

Some aircraft may appear identical but there are differences which will not be discernible from the image.
