Bristol 170 Freighter & Avro York: Humble Wings.

Bristol 170 Freighter & Avro York: Humble Wings

The early postwar years weren’t the best for British civil aircraft industry. Neglected during the war, its postwar development paid dearly in the postwar markets. Only a few exceptions, namely the Viscount and to a lesser degree the Comet, could be considered a success.
Here we can see two examples of that situation; the quite successful if pedestrian Bristol Freighter and the Avro York, a stopgap which soldiered long after it was obviously obsolete.
