New “Flounder” Plane Is Britain’s Bid For Airline Supremacy
A DESIGN for a super airplane, which would constitute a national bid for world-wide airline supremacy, has been projected by Fred Miles, prominent British aeronautical engineer. As shown in the sketches, the proposed 38-passenger plane resembles a flounder in general appearance. The estimated performance figures for the plane when powered by four 900 horsepower motors indicate a top speed of 295 m.p.h.
