Breguet Atlantic contenders
« on: May 20, 2007, 12:20:11 pm »
Found this photo of a model of the Piaggio P.155 ASW amphibious aircraft
in FLIEGER 1955. I think, it was one of the 25 contenders to the NATO ASW
aircraft, which eventually saw the Breguet Atlantic as the winner.
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

AFAIK, the Nord contender, mentioned by Cuny only as ASM, was
a Breguet Atlantic lookalike. The Noratlas derivatives were just
intended as ASW trainers and were already outdated at the time
of this program.

... what was the Canadair project to this competition ?.

Canadair CL-67 in two different versions. One with four AS Mamba 10s, and another with four RR Tyne 1s (4310 shp).

Dimensions for the Tyne-powered version were: span 37.18m, area 125.4 m2, height 9.75m.

"Hi Everyone.
Found the attached photo at the Heathrow Air Fair last Sunday. It shows a model of the Piaggio P.155 flying boat project on display at an industry show somewhere. My knowledge of Italian flying boats is zero, so I wondered if anyone had any information please. I don't even know if this design was ever built or flown because I cannot find any references to it anywhere. I am assuming 1950s but the photo has no information on the back.
 
Thanks to all of you for your support again this year. Very Best Wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
Tony Buttler"

Looks like Tony forgot to search Secret Projects forum  ;D ;D ;D
