Flight Journal had some info on this in an article by Barnaby Wainfain on low aspect ratio wings. The final version of the Aerobus was my favorite. If I ever get my scanner working, I'll scan it in.

Am I the only one to think that there is a lot of the Armstrong Whitworth A.W.52 in this design?

The HP 126 multi-view and the 134 artists impression are from
Handley Page Aircraft since 1907 by CH Barnes, Putnam 2nd ed 1987.

The multi-view and internal view of the 134 are from Stuck on the Drawing Board
by Richard Payne, Tempus 2004.

As to design influence on the 126 one needn't go off the farm as H-P had the earlier HP117
work to draw from.

Er, you meant... H.P.126 I guess. Seems like my A.W.-related message troubled you!

I find the H.P.126 to be much closer in design to the A.W.52 than to the H.P.117, personally, what with the broken trailing edge and oval wingtip fins...

Ahh, thanks. It turns out it was the H.P. 134 I was thinking of, I thought they were all the same number, the Aerobus concepts.

Not only that, but Handley Page also gained experience with flying wing/tailless designs with the HP.52 Manx.
