Photographer's Note

What a difference among the basic concepts of military aircraft in past and presence!
The Fairey Gannet was a twin-prop British aircraft for anti-submarine warfare which was produced from 1953 until 1959 and served in the navies of the United Kingdom, Australia, (West) Germany and Indonesia. Its outstanding marks were the double engine, connected by a gearbox to two coaxial propellers rotating in opposite direction, and the double folding of the wings forming a distinctive Z-shape on each side, enabling operations from a carrier.
One of the last surviving Gannets on display at AERONAUTICUM Nordholz, the German airship and naval aviation museum, and it was taken on film, of course.
