Two designs were selected as showing considerable potential, the De Haviland 110, (which became the Sea Vixen) and Glosters proposal for a large twin jet delta. Gloster's proposal was afforded 'super priority' status which more or less committed the Government and the RAF to the Gloster design whether it worked out or not. De Havilands proposal suffering a serious set back when the prototype crashed at the Farnborough air show.
The Javelin prototype was first flown in 1951 and both prototypes were lost, one with the loss of its crew. It was established that at certain angles of attack the large delta wing blocked off airflow to the high mounted tailplane resulting in a flat spin with the pilot unable to recover control. Therefore during it's service career the Javalin was extemely flight limited, the pilots notes forbidding pilots to loop or roll the aircraft, (incredible for a fighter!)
However this does not mean that the Javelin was a failiure, the RAF was at this time placing it's faith in guided missiles and tended to regard the Javalin as a high speed missile carrier, which to be fair the Javalin did very well. Infact the Javelin remained in service for twelve years, finally being retired in 1965. In restrospect though, many observers feel that the RAF would have been better served by the DH110.
