It is like something from the Great Waldo Pepper.

There's another video and you can see the police cars, that had closed the road at the far end, which were narrowly missed.

Can’t find any previous reference to this, wonder if this is why the North Weald based T5 has been donated to the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection?

The Prototype JP T.5 had an off runway incident back in June, the owner (ex RAF IIRC) has donated it to BDAC as the damage around the nosewheel and main undercarriage while not too bad was deemed to be rather too much.

Thank you for the information.
That’s a nice gesture as the airframe is appropriate to the collection

A thing of beauty is a joy forever - 'nuf said! :blush:
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....
