Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hawker Siddeley HS.141 was a 1970s design study and submission for a British V/STOL airliner requirement. Designed by Hawker Siddeley Aviation and tested in wind tunnels neither prototypes nor production aircraft were produced. In 1969 the British Transport Aircraft Requirements Committee (TARC) issued a design study 'Outline Requirement' (OR) for a 100-seat VTOL airliner capable of a range of 450 miles (725 km).[2] Emphasis was to be on noise reduction by using steep approach and departure profiles, much like those used today at London City Airport. It was thought at the time that money would be better invested on designing new aircraft types than building a third London airport.show more
