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.

H.P.97 second version In October 1956 HP published a new civil Victor design, re-using the H.P.97 designation and so further muddying the waters. https://i.imgur.com/pdzs3Fu.png The new H.P.97 retained the double bubble fuselage concept, but that was all that was in common with the original H.P.97....
