Compare the Avro Tudor never-builts, that were modifications and developments of actually built airframes - they were easily able to be drawn with an accurate detailed paneling displayed. Conversely, these HP airframes look bare without panel lines, but when there is no built aircraft - even one vag...

H.P.108 In 1955 HP submitted proposals for a laminar flow controlled airliner as the H.P.102, as well as the Jet Provost derived H.P.103 test aircraft. HP also proposed a military version of the H.P.102, as the H.P.105. As Sir Frederick could not get traction to proceed to immediate construction of...

H.P.130 A modified Folland Midge wing was test flown on an Avro Lancaster (keeping that aircraft employed and allowing it to survive to become the BOB Memorial Flight Lancaster) to further validate the the concept, and in 1963 HP proposed to further test fly in a modified HS.125 jet. https://i.imgu...

H.P.113 With testing now moving to a swept wing aircraft, in 1957 HP looked to modify a production English Electric Canberra bomber to take a swept wing. https://i.imgur.com/sow1wvq.png Two Bristol Orpheus engines were to be mounted in the rear fuselage, with inflight air intake being though the po...

In 1949 when Lachmann returned to HP, he brought with him the idea to create a porous wing structure to "suck in" the turbulent layer of air over a wing, and so decrease aerodynamic drag. Initial experiments with a glove over a Vampire wing were successful, although initial data suggested that this ...

Hunting Percival Jet Provost T.2 Advances to the initial T.1 were made by HP in 4 aircraft built as Jet Provost T.2 development aircraft. https://i.imgur.com/DqL3BvE.png The first T.2 was modified from the final T.1 during construction. To counter instabilty on the ground the landing gear was short...

Did someone say Jet Provost ? https://i.imgur.com/FvJzPel.png Initially Hunting Percival produced 12 Jet Provost T.1 aircraft, supplying 10 to the RAF and retaining 1 as a test airframe and 1 as a demonstrator. The Jet Provost T.1's proved the concept of ab initio jet trainers, and were used to deve...

H.P.123 tactical transport The last gasp of the Victor design was an advanced version of the Treble One to RAF Operational Requirement 351 for a VSTOL transport. https://i.imgur.com/C2HhSZW.png Progressing further on the use of engine bleed air boundary layer control, the H.P.123 would have had eve...

H.P.111C civil airliner

With the failure of the military H.P.111, HP tendered a civil passenger version to BOAC, and then an alternate all freighter version.

BOAC instead chose the Vickers VC-10, and the H.P.111C did not enter production.
