    I've actually seen one of these. It was outside a boatyard on the Isle Of Wight, wrapped entirely in canvas, mid 1970s.

    +Paul Stickland , are you sure it wasn't earlier? According to the Wiki on this plane "When the cocooning was removed, it was found that they were badly corroded (the contract for maintenance and inspection of the stored aircraft had been allowed to lapse, which resulted in the airframes deteriorating rapidly), and all three Princesses were broken up by 1967."

    +Ed Greshko I suspect that you're right, as we used to holiday there before moving to the Island. It remains deeply embedded on me, a vast impressive sculptural form.

    Looks like Counter Rotating props. Amazing this thing could gain enough speed to even think of lifting off out of the water.
