I just ask, is the Saro P.208 project amphibian or flying boat.
http://rides.webshots.com/photo/2695001730048918155QVwPHUSaunders Roe designed and built the Saro Princess flying boat. Though it was an excellent machine, only two were built, as there was little need for flying boats after the War. None of this, however, deterred the company's designers from conceiving an even larger jet-powered version, powered by no fewer than 24 turbojets buried in the wing! Source: Jerram, M.

Triton said:According to a Saunders-Roe advertisement appearing in the February 26, 1954 issue of Flight, Saunders-Roe was researching a versatile and adaptable Ocean Patrol and Transport flying-boat.
