Miles M.56
Страна: Великобритания
Год: 1944

One of the companies that sought to fulfil the potentially lucrative "DC-3 replacement” requirement was Miles Aircraft Ltd, which had been exploring “blended wing” designs for some time, and which in August 1944 fielded a brochure for its M.56 24-seat airliner.

The M.56 was to be powered by a pair of Rolls-Royce Merlin 24 engines with ducted low-drag radiators housed in the wing. A four-engined version was also proposed, but by the end of 1944 the MAP had shown no interest and the idea was shelved.
