An unsuccessful contender for a 1917 large bomber requirement, the Bristol Braemar triplane 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.
