A Belfast-built experimental aircraft has received Northern Ireland's first Engineering Heritage Award.
The SC1, constructed by Shorts, was the first British fixed-wing vertical take-off and landing aeroplane.
The Institution of Mechanical Engineers announced the recipient of its 76th award on Thursday. The awards are given in recognition of significant engineering achievements.
Past awards went to the Thames Barrier, the Channel Tunnel and HMS Belfast.
This archive footage shows the craft's vertical take off abilities being tested.
