Hesham ,

This is commercial art only I am afraid... not a projected design.
(last aircraft was their COA 19 Concordia ,abandoned in November 1947)

Stupid question, who's Cunliffe-Owen? Are they in someway related to Airspeed? It looks like a 4-engined Ambassador to me.

Not a Burnelli fan, eh? ;D

Cunliffe-Owen Aircraft was a small firm set up at Eastleigh to build the UB-14 licenced as the OA-1. A prototype was built but the OA-1 tanked. The unbuilt OA-2 project was also a Burnelli-type lifting body design.

Cunliffe-Owen spent the war doing repairs for the Supermarine flight test facility across the runway. After the war, Cunliffe-Owen built the prototype Concordia 10-seat transport but production was cancelled and the factory sold to Ford.
