First one is an Avro Ashton, a Tudor rebuilt as a jet engine testbed.
|Quoting Ghostbase (Reply 5):|
The engine layouts are rather interesting. The two R.R. Avons stacked one above the other on the Sperrin was largely replicated in the slightly later E.E. Lightning although I think one of the Lightning's jet engines is stepped slightly forward of the other. The arrangement on the Ashton looks much more modern though in reality it is unusual to have two engines next to each other in the same 'pod', perhaps the Comet with two buried in each wing and Concorde might be exceptions to this. Was there not a Russian airliner with twin engines in each wing or am I thinking of the Myasischev M-4 (Bison)?

Perhaps thinking of the East German Baade Bb. 152 ? Shoulder-winged 4-engined airliner with dual engine pods under each wing.
