The Saunders-Roe Princess was a British flying boat aircraft built for BOAC by Saunders-Roe, based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight. In 1951 BOAC changed its mind about its needs and decided it had no requirement for the Princess.   First flight: 22 August 1952   Specifications: Crew: 2 pilots, 2 flight engineers, radio operator and navigator - Capacity: 105 passengers in tourist and first class cabins - Length: 148 ft (42 m) - Wingspan: 219 ft (67 m) - Height: 55 ft (17 m) - Cruise speed: 360 mph (580 km/h) at 32,500 ft - Range: 5,720 miles (9,205 km) - Selected comment: "It may well have been ahead of its time! With such high density traffic in and out of commerical airports, flying boats would provide a realistic alternative since they don't require high-quality runways. These airplanes require far less development to operate from and could use commerical shipping ports."   Wiki
