The first euphoria in designing the Avro Canada "Avrocar" stimulated the designers of the company to create a series of possible derivatives

"Avroangel"
"Avrobus"
"Avrocoach"
"Avropelican" (for SAR missions)
"Avrotruck"
"Avrowagon"

All these names I've found on www.ufx.org/avro/avro.htm two or three years ago, but the website didn't work precise. The artwork of some of the developments mentioned above were never shown.

Did anyboby save these illustrations successfully?

Maybe you will find something on my web. I collected a lot of disc shaped aircrafts all around the world:

It's too bad that site died, it was a really good one. :'(

"Avro AIrcraft and Cold War Aviaton" has some fascinating material on Avro Canada's other circular-wing projexts. There's some truly fascinating material there.
