Overview

This in-depth study of British airliner prototypes from 1945 to the present gives a unique overview of post-war British airliner development. This is the first time that a detailed study has been produced in one volume on the prolific developmental output of British post-war civil aviation design. This book is the result of many years of dedicated research by the author, who has drawn upon previously unknown and untapped manufacturers' archives. Following an in-depth introduction on the Brabazon Committee and the development of the post-war British aircraft industry, the author tells the fascinating story of the many designs which emerged over a 40-year period to compete in an ever-growing international market. The book includes an overview of each airliner's genesis and development supported by performance and production details. The author provides a detailed history for each of the many prototypes with both color and black and white photographs, many of which have never been published before. With the recent end of airliner manufacture in the UK by indigenous firms, this is a timely look at how the great story of airliner building in Britain developed post war and grew with great success over many years, and how now, at the beginning of the 21st century, British-built airliners are a thing of the past.
