Bristol Britannia was a British medium-to-long-range airliner

The first prototype G-ALBO was modified subsequently to a more closely approximate production standard. Bristol revised the design for BOAC into a larger transatlantic airliner. Qantas had been considering purchasing a fleet of Britannia aircraft. Route-proving trials continued although orders through 1955. The purchase price paid for each Britannia 100-series aircraft by BOAC. The Britannia received a fair amount of attention powered by 705 turboprops by Proteus. Aviation historian Peter Pigott summarised the impact of the delays.

Another significant departure was being standard parts and North American materials. Canadair built 39 Canadair CL-44, Canadair CC-106 Yukon turboprop Rolls Royce Tyne. The similar CC-106 Yukon was used in a solely passenger configuration by the RCAF. The most prominent modification was an enlarged fuselage like the Mini Guppy. A long operational career was stored in 2003 at Bournemouth Airport. The 10 last aircraft of the order were built as 300 aircraft as Series. Other airlines used the Britannia on transatlantic routes. These intercontinental BOAC Britannia flights was London-New York-San Francisco-Honolulu-Wake Island-Tokyo-Hong Kong. The main long-range series were the 310s saw also transatlantic service de Aviación with Cubana. Cubana de Aviación continued using various Britannias. Most aircraft were built at Filton by Bristol, skidded then fire. A more fitting epitaph was proffered recently by the editors of Aeroplane. Long-range fuel capacity was known originally as 300LR. Fourteen Britannias were lost between 1954 with a total of 365 fatalities.

The worst accident was the 1967 Nicosia Britannia disaster with a loss of life. The test flight beginning with the No. with a loss of oil pressure. The probable cause of the accident was degraded aerodynamic performance beyond the flight capabilities of the aircraft. An Aeronaves de Mexico Model was the aircraft Over the Atlantic in the 1959 movie Jet. XM496 was withdrawn from RAF use, was purchased by Monarch Airline's Airline Engineering. The Duxford Aviation Society is involved closely in maintenance and restoration in the conservation. The Freighter 31and 31E have increased take-off weight and power with a dorsal fin. Aresult of a change were transferred to RAF Transport Command. Maximum payload is 28,0001 b, freight and 84passengers.
