Bristol Braemar


bristol_braemar


An unsuccessful contender for a 1917 large bomber requirement, the four-engined triplane Bristol Braemar which did not go into production. The Braemar formed the basis of the Pullman, an equally unwanted airliner with a large cabin and enclosed cockpit. The Pullman's crew distrusted this feature and took to carrying axes with which to hack their way out in an emergency.
