The Supermarine Swift was a British single-seat jet fighter of the Royal Air Force (RAF) built by Supermarine during the 1950s. After a protracted development period, the Swift entered service as an interceptor, but, due to a spate of accidents, its service life was short. A photo-recon version, the FR.5, resolved some of the Swift’s teething problems. The FR.5 was the last Swift variant to enter service with the RAF.
