The essential history of Britain's failed aircraft designs. The years after 1945 were ones of triumph and tragedy for the British aviation industry. From the triumphs of the world's first jet airliner, world speed and altitude records to the tragedy of the rapid decline of a major industry and closure of many manufacturers, the last sixty years have overall been disastrous for Britain's aviation industry. For the first time, Richard Payne looks at the failures of the past sixty years. For whatever reason none of these aircraft went into production. The designs showed promise but were often under-developed by cash-strapped companies without the wherewithal to produce them. A tragic tale of Britain's industrial decline.
