In an Air Enthusiast September 1972 article on the civilian 14/38 and 15/38 specifications that led to the Fairey FC1 and the Short S32, it mentions in the S32 part that prior to the specifications being produced, Handley Page had offered a ‘civil version of the HP97, later to be the Halifax bomber, carrying 25 passengers on a non-stop London-Copenhagen service, or 1,600lb of mail from Lisbon to Bathurst, Gambia.’


Does anyone know if this was to be a straight conversion of the bomber fuselage or were the wings etc to be joined to a new fuselage?

The actual civilian Halifax carried 11 passengers so 25 seems a bit cramped to me if the existing fuselage was to be kept but possibly not enough for an Avro York type fuselage except for very long range.
