We still fly DC-6 aircraft up here, along with a few Grummans, and there are a host of airframes within easy driving distances stretching from the C-119 to a AN-2 being restored. Looking at all these old prop-planes, it lead me to wonder what a modern large prop aircraft would look like.
Modern large aircraft have swept wings and sloping tails, developed for high speed jet service. If there were a modern replacement for the Bristol Britannia/Yukon, would it share these features, perhaps looking more like a Russian Bear Bomber than the Brabazon? If it were a slower creature, would it have straighter wings?
