The Supermarine Swift was originally designed as an interceptor fighter but was most successful as a low level photo reconnaissance aircraft, operating over Germany during the late 1950s. A strong airframe with good speed at low level, it excelled in this role, often beating NATO contemporaries in photo reconnaissance competitions.
