 Entry last updated on 9/4/2017; Authored by Staff Writer; Content ¬©

The Royal Aircraft Establishment of Britain relied on a single example of the Handley Page HP.115 aircraft for research into delta-winged planforms.

There are currently no development or operational history details available for the Handley Page HP.115. Rest assured that we are hard at work on adding more information to the Military Factory database so please check back at another time.

Each entry goes through a lengthy research process that produces the final write up. The write up is then complemented by appropriate imagery for the associated text through a lengthy picture hunting process. Statistics are then verified before the entry is completed in our database and posted for review.

For the interim, please consider busying yourself with another section on
