Description

The carrier-borne Fairey Gannet, designed for anti-submarine duty, made its first flight in 1949 and was the first aircraft in the world to fly with a coupled jet turbine power unit with contra-rotating propellers. It was also the first turbo-prop aircraft that could land on an aircraft carrier and the first aircraft of the British Fleet Air Arm capable of both combat and search operations.

The Gannet AS went into service with the FAA in January 1955 and was stationed on aircraft carriers. In 1958 the newly formed Federal German Navy received 15 of the more powerful Gannet AS4s that were equipped with a 3,035 shp engine.
