Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The BAC Two-Eleven and BAC Three-Eleven were British airliner studies proposed by the British Aircraft Corporation in the late 1960s. The projects emerged from design studies aimed at competing first with the Boeing 727-200 and then with the proposed European Airbus. In 1966, the Two-Eleven was proposed. It was sized close to the Boeing 727-200, but more resembling the future MD-80 in size and layout. The study failed to attract attention and had been shelved by 1968. The Three-Eleven was mooted at the 1967 and 1969 Paris Air Shows. It was a widebody in the size, weight, and range class of the original, somewhat smaller European Airbus. At the time, the Three-Eleven was widely assumed to have emerged with encouragement from some British government circles and circles close to Rolls-Royce, who were anxious to have a fall-back option in case the European Airbus failed. BAC was thought to have welcomed such encouragement, not being part of the European Airbus (as distinct from Hawker Siddeley) and having little airliner work for the future.show more
