SR.N1 General Arrangement
This lack of military interest meant that there was no reason to keep the concept secret, and it was declassified. Cockerell was finally able to convince the National Research Development Corporation to fund development of a full-scale model. In 1958 the NRDC placed a contract with Saunders-Roe for the development of what would become the SR.N1, short for "Saunders-Roe, Nautical 1".

The SR.N1 was powered by a 450 hp Alvis Leonides engine powering a vertical fan in the middle of the craft. In addition to providing the lift air, a portion of the airflow was bled off into two channels on either side of the craft, which could be directed to provide thrust. In normal operation this extra airflow was directed rearward for forward thrust, and blew over two large vertical rudders that provided directional control. For low-speed manoeuvrability, the extra thrust could be directed fore or aft, differentially for rotation. Wikipedia:" SR.N1 made its first hover on 11 June 1959, and made its famed successful crossing of the English Channel on 25 July 1959. In December 1959, the Duke of Edinburgh visited Saunders-Roe at East Cowes and persuaded the chief test-pilot, Commander Peter Lamb, to allow him to take over the SR.N1's controls. He flew SR.N1 so fast that he was asked to slow down a little. On examination of the craft afterwards, it was found that she had been dished in the bow due to excessive speed, damage which was never allowed to be repaired, and was from then on affectionately referred to as the 'Royal Dent'."

Lindon, Elia. Kafka, Franz. Diary of a group of 4 (?) Frenchmen visting the First Airshow outside French in Brescia. Making private photographs of this show. Album entitled. : "Mon Voyage en Italie. 11 - 20 Septembre 1909. At this show also Franz Kafka was present. He wrote on this theme " Die Aeroplane in Brescia"
Brescia a.o., 1909.Oblong 8v0 album 15 pages of text in handwriting in French. Describing the journey to Brescia and other places in Italy. With 82 small photographs ( snapshots. Of which 10 depicting the Brescia Airshow. Photographed sometimes faded otherwise in very good if not fine condition.
"The Aeroplanes At Brescia" (German: "Die Aeroplane in Brescia") is a short story by Franz Kafka published, in slightly shortened form, in the newspaper Bohemia in September 1909. It describes an airshow in the Italian town Brescia, which Kafka saw with two of his friends (Max and his brother Otto Brod) during their journey to Italy. Among other participants, they saw Louis Blériot, the aviator famous for the first flight across the English Channel.[1] The story is lively and witty, as Kafka was fascinated by the airshow. It is also the first description of aeroplanes in German literature. The first air race meeting outside France.
Curiously our guests are at the same time at the same place as Franz Kafka ans saw probably the same. A fascinating document this diary well illustrated. Important for the history of aviation and of course Franz Kafka. Most probably Elia Lindon wrote this manuscript :"
"Admirons vol de 50 km, de Rougier puis Curtiss, Calderara et enfin lui ( Blériot) et son geste éloquent qui lui conquiert toutes les sympathies,12 Sept. ... Madeleine , Blériot qui passe a 2 meters d'elle. " Lundi 20 sept... Rene et Marie partent a 7 hrs pour Brescia etc...
