The recovery of a Fairey Barracuda from the Solent off the former RNAS Daedalus“.

During survey work carried out in preparation for the IFA2 interconnector project, the extant remains of a Fairey Barracuda were discovered. The first all-aluminium high winged monoplane used by the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm; no surviving examples exist. The ongoing research into the recovered remains of the aircraft and historic archives has identified several inconsistencies, leading to questions about the identity of the aircraft, the records around its loss, and wartime production contingencies across different aircraft manufacturers.
