 From the Preface

The 50th anniversary of the first flight of the Saunders-Roe Princess was celebrated at a special event held at East Cowes on 22nd August 2003. This book is a sequel to this event and has been produced to present some indication of the engineering achievements of the Saunders-Roe Company and its team of employees and contractors/suppliers in designing, building and flying the worlds largest all metal flying boat, the Saunders-Roe SR45 Princess.


This book presents the origins of the Princess project in the desire to create the ultimate long-range passenger carrying flying boat, the evolution of the Saunders-Roe Company and a description of the design, development flight testing and eventual demise of the Sunders-Roe Princess as the largest all metal flying boat ever constructed.
