My vector drawing (no auto trace) of the Bristol Brabazon type 167 Transatlantic Airliner on a background of a digital painting of a local sky.

No image may be reproduced, copied, edited, published, or uploaded without my permission.

The Bristol Type 167 Brabazon was a large propeller-driven airliner, designed by the Bristol Aeroplane Company, to fly transatlantic routes between the United Kingdom and the United States. Despite its size, comparable to a Boeing 767 or a DC-10, it was designed to carry only 100 passengers, each one granted room about the size of the entire interior of a small car.

The prototype was completed and flown in 1949, only to prove a commercial failure when airlines felt the airliner was too large and expensive to be useful. In the end, only the single prototype was flown; it was broken up in 1953 for scrap, along with the uncompleted turboprop-powered Brabazon I Mk.II.
