Here's the aircraft that stumped the panel a few years ago. We should all know what it is now, though.

Looks like a Snipe's tail. Not sure what it would be doing on HMS Vindictive, though.

If we elaborate a little bit mote this is the Airfix model of the "small banjo" - F2H-2P with the photo-recce nose. The kit includes the normal nose for the F2H-2 as well. There was no Airfix model of the "big banjo" (F2F-3 or 4) so far.

I know what it looks like, but there appear to be too many inter-plane struts. :think:

Jesper is right - the ditched a/c is a Port Victoria (P.V.) Grain Griffin, N105 (the airplanes were numbered N100-N106) coded A'TT.
Second photo of N105

Good article here.
I guess dancho had the above information in mind, writing "We should all know what it is now, though..."
