I'm wondering everytime anew, how it's possible to get a wardrobe to fly.

I think this one is the second ugliest plane ever built, second only to the Ilyushin Il-102. And it's a close call...

Great shot of a very ungainly aircraft. It looks awkward, as if it wants to be back in the ground. It seems the designers could not solve the problem of how to have retractable gear while maintaining the aircraft's load-carrying ability. Are there any other four-engine aircraft with fixed gear? And who would name an aircrfat model 'Beverley"?! Crazy.

Ungainly, yes, but it has true beauty in its utilitarian design.

I suspect it was called Beverley, as Beverley is a lovely old market town close to Brough in East Yorkshire where this aircraft was manufactured. Well worth a visit if you're ever in that part of the world!

Once saw an image which seemed to show a hoist track on bottom of tail boom.
