Crazy Aircraft That Never Flew | Part 1: Airliners & Transports

Wilder designs and concepts for Airliners and Transport Aircraft

In today’s special video we are taking a look at some of the wilder designs and concepts for airliners and transport aircraft. Following on from this will be a couple of episodes looking at various military aircraft as well.
Today’s aircraft include:
Saunders-Roe Duchess: A jet-powered flying boat concept that was envisioned in the late 1940s.
Sanders-Roe Queen: An considerably larger jet-powered flying boat, that was designed upon request by P&O.
Junkers J1000: A design for a large almost flying wing, dating from the mid-1920sl
Airliner No.4: A huge design concept for what was essentially a flying cruise ship (much like the Saro Queen), the brainchild of Normal Bel Geddes.

Boulton-Paul P.144 & P.146: Two VTOL concepts, one small, one vaguely insane, both very cool looking.

Tupolev Tu-404: A giant blended-wing airliner concieved in the early 1990s.

Rolls-Royce Griffith Concept: A supersonic transport that is based on several patents applied by Alan Arnold Griffith.
