First flown just after the end of WW2, the Tudor was developed for the company Lancaster/Lincoln line of long-range bombers. Originally intended for operation by BOAC, the Tudor suffered numerous technical set-backs, among them the prototype crash which took the life of its designer, Roy Chadwick. The design was born obsolete anyway and it had few takers; a whole variety of versions were produced with more or less lack of fortune.
Gorgeous cutaway of the basic model. Intended to be used on the important North Atlantic route, the Tudor I proved to be old-fashioned, unstable and incapable. BOAC rejected the few ordered.
