Airliner Cutaway Drawings

Fri Mar 17, 2000 11:53 pm

In a couple of airliner-related books I have, there are immensely detailed cutaway drawings by Aviagraphica. I've been trying to find this company on the web, but I've had no luck. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Sorry, I wouldn't be able to help you as what websites on those Aviagraphica drawings are.

But what are the titles and authors of the books do you have that contain these cutaway drawings?? I LOVE those drawings!!

As a matter of fact, I do have one book, Commercial Aircraft Markings and Profiles by Christy Campbell. I got this book back in 1991 at LHR(a/c spotter's heaven, passenger's hell). I don't think you could find such a book in the US - It's a British publication. It shows the cutaway drawings of the following a/c: A320, A340-300, 737-400, 747-400, 767-300, BAe 146-300, Fokker 100, Ilyushin IL 96-300, L-1011-500 and the MD-11 - eleven a/c in all! I sure would love to get more!

I have two editions of "Modern Commercial Airliners." I believe Gordon Swanborough is the editor. The older one (purchased in 1987) contains cutaways of the Trident, Caravelle, 737-200, and other oldies, as well as what was state of the art at the time. The newer edition i purchased at Barnes & Noble last year. I'll try to scan some of those and E-mail them to you, but it may take me a couple of days, since I have to get one of my lazy friends off his butt in order to use his scanner.

Hey! Not bad! Actually, I'll see if they have such a book at Chapters, which is Canada's largest bookstore chain. If they don't, I'll give you my email address on Sunday or Monday and then you can email those scans to me.
