Looking For Info On The Bristol Brabazon

Sat Sep 27, 2003 4:44 am

Been doing a bit of reading/research on Bristol Aircraft Co. and can find mention of, but very little, info on the Bristol (model 167) Brabazon. Any body have any info, tech specs., web links, etc.???

Thanks,

Hello Jetmek319.

Here's a few links. It's a pretty interesting aircraft.

Check out how the engines are mounted on an angle to the propeller shaft in the fourth photo in the first link. There's 2 engines per counter-rotating propeller shaft. That's wild stuff!

I hope this helps a bit. Big grin
