The Boulton Paul P.120 delta wing research aircraft, built to Air Ministry Specification E.27/49, was used to investigate high speed characteristics of the delta wing.
The P.120, flown on 6 August 1952, was similar in general layout to the P.111 but had an all-moving tailplane mounted on a squat fin. The aircraft was lost on 29 August, in an accident thought to have been caused by tail flutter.
