Hi,

Does anyone hear about HFB-209 twin turboprop transport aircraft which
developed from CASA C-209 and HFB-314 airliner which intended to compete
the Caravelle ?.

Sounds like a good turboprop replacement/competitor for the Convair 580/660 series, if that was what the airlines were looking for.

Dear Boys & Girls, here is a "Secret Project" for you, the Hamburger Flugzeugbau HFB-209; a German airliner with Napier Eland or Allison 501 turboprop engines.

Actually, it's not "Secret", but it is a "Project"......

The cutting is from the 20th July 1957 issue of Les Ailes......

Terry (Caravellarella)......

Re: Hamburger Flugzeugbau GmbH HFB-314 jet airliner project......

Dear Boys and Girls, here is an article in French announcing cancellation of the Hamburger Flugzeugbau GmbH HFB-314 jet airliner "project"; the "German Caravelle", because of a lack of serious customer interest in face of continuing Sud Caravelle development and the imminent launch of the Boeing 727......

The article comes from the 16th December 1960 issue of Les Ailes......

There is an article about HFB 314 and HFB 209 in the magazine 'Flugzeug Classic', 04/2000 (September/ October), page 68-71.
All pictures featured in that article have been posted from other sources in more or less quality in this topic before.

The German magazine 'Klassiker der Luftfahrt' published an old 7 paged advertising brochure about the Turboprop-Airliner HFB-209.

Vergessenes Projekt der 50er Jahre
Der Turboprop-Airliner HFB-209
Der Hamburger Flugzeugbau als Teil der Schiffswerft Blohm & Voss suchte nach dem zweiten Weltkrieg wieder den Anschluß an die Luftfahrtindustrie und beteiligte sich zunächst an der Lizenzfertigung der Nord 2501 Noratlas.
Im Juli 1957 berichtete die Fachpresse erstmals über das neue Projekt HFB-209, das den im Einsatz befindlichen Convair-Linern Konkurrenz machen sollte. Außer der nachfolgenden kleinen Werbebroschüre ist über diesen Typ so gut wie nichts an die Öffentlichkeit gelangt.

My two cents.
Draw made using Inkscape on the only blueprint available of the HFB.209.
Of course I could only imagine some details. Hope you enjoy my work.

Re: the HFB 314
Wonder why the D-shaped (is that called sugar scoop?) inlets? It would seem like the length necessary to transition to a round section at the compressor (or fan?) face would impose a drag and weight penalty. Could they have wanted to grab undisturbed air while placing the engines as far aft and inboard as possible?

That's possible,any change in wing shape forced on the designer to figure a suitable
position for the engines,if he failed,the simple thing is to put them in rear fuselage.

That's an interesting link Steelpillow.
Other aircraft projects depicted on other pages of that article of operator's reference drawings include the Avro 771 and the BAC 107 as well as the VC-10 Super Freighter.
