Scan of photo taken a t Helston June 1985
Fairey Gannet ECM.6 XG831/396
Fitted with a development of the Mamba engine, the coupled Double Mamba, the Gannet had a long gestation, as rapidly advancing technology caused the Admiralty to upgrade the specifi cation frequently. The Gannet entered
service in 1954, and in airborne early warning (AEW) form remained in service until 1979.
The Gannet AS.6 was upgraded for use as an electronic countermeasures aircraft, the Gannet ECM.6, which had a crew of three, seated in tandem. Behind the pilot sat the Observer (equivalent to the RAF’s Navigator), and behind him, near the tail, was the second ECM operator.
