Hi Everyone!

Presented here is information (what little I have) on the Shorts P.D. 75.

The Short P.D. 75 concept originated some time in 1965, in response to a BEA call for proposals for a subsonic "air-bus" for European high-density routes.

It was to be a 200-passenger, double-deck aircraft with four (4) turbofan engines mounted in vertical pairs ABOVE the wings.

I don't have any other information on this aircraft as far as dimensions, performance, etc.

Chuck

Thanks Chuck,

There is only a mention on Stuck on the Drawing Board by Richard Payne but no drawing

Could you please scan it selecting a smaller "white" area around the drawing so we could get a bigger drawing with the same file size?
::)

Thanks again
Antonio
