Let me guess where you heard about this plane. You saw it on History's Greatest Blunders on the History Channel! I loved that De Lorean sports car! Its a shame that its no longer in production.
Well anyways, sorry I don't know any sites on the Brabazon. All I know is that Bristol was the manufacturer of that aircraft. You might want to search for that. Bristol did go bankrupt a while ago which is quite dissapointing! There might be a site on its history though!

hehehe... thought I was the only one in the world that watched that channel. I was suprised that I had never heard of an aircraft such as that one before. Quite an amazing one she is!

Bristol did not go bankrupt. They were merged (under a UK government directive) in 1962 with Vickers, Hunting and English Electric to form The British Aircraft Corporation (BAC).

Under UK law, companies cannot go bankrupt, they either go into receivership or liquidation, depending on the severity of their circumstances. Receivership is the nearest equivalent to the US Chapter 11 situation.
