Bristol's Type 170 Mk1 Freighter began as a private project in 1944 to design a simple, sturdy and economical working transport for civil or military use. It featured an unobstructed box fuselage with the flight deck mounted above it, and two clamshell doors in the nose for straight-in loading. Only one Freighter remained in service in 1999, in Canada, with Hawkair Aviation Services. More information: www.aer.ita.br/~bmattos/mundo/airliner/bristol170.htm Reynolds Museum-0406
