I second the previous comment that the Bristol 175 resembles the Ilyushin II18. This Bristol looks like a Sovjet design, something with the cockpit windows. Even though the Bristol probably was the "inspiration" to what resulted in the II18.

Thanks for the memories Bill. A timeless shot of a classic that made me dream of enjoying a fine cigar and a "Papa Special" at the end of 06!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon August 20, 2012:
I had no idea that Cubana operated the Britannia. Lovely shot, many thanks.

Thanks for the memory Bill - I was at the far end of the runway that day. A stunning memory of the "glory days" at EINN.

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 11, 2011:
Only now I am realizing the strong resemblance between the design of the Bristol 175 and that of Ilyushin Il-18 (former flew in 1952, latter in 1957). Excellent historic shot from which I learned something new!

Amazing action shot. Best shot in airliners.net IMHO :-)

A visitor from Germany posted Fri April 16, 2010:
New to me that the Cubans have been operating the nose heavy British design, and across the pond.

Wow! This is the Anet definition of "rare!"
