Planned 1000 passenger giant flying boat for P&O, so really she what better place for her than a nautical forum.

There are still another couple of Avro designs that I couldn't illustrate, because after nearly 75 years there doesn't appear to be enough information to work out decent schematics, the superbombers just boggle the imagination.

Avro 711A Trader https://i.imgur.com/xElqcra.png With the Tudor banned from passenger carrying operations, Avro looked at creating a Tudor 2 freighter.
