The M.5 Sparrowhawk prototype survived the war and in 1953 was
modified considerably by the installation of two 150kg thrust Turbomeca Palas jet engines to become the M.77 Sparrowjet with a speed of 370km/h.

As a boy, I was sometimes allowed to go to work with my father when Miles was based at Red Hill Aerodrome, I can recall seeing the fuselage on trestles in the hangar, minus the outer wings, but with engines fitted.
