  5. Hi, today I came across this 1954 advertisement by Saunders-Roe which tried to convince "Flight"- readers that flying boats had a bright future ahead of them: http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1954/1954%20-%203309.html In fact, most of the so-called false assumptions about flying boats that the advertisement tried to disprove turned out to be true and very few new flying boats have been built after the 1950s. Most interesting is the claim that flying boats would be best suited for nuclear propulsion because an aircraft with a reactor onboard will be very heavy. As flying boats are not limited by the length of available runways, such a very heavy nuclear aircraft would be best built as a flying boat, the advertisment argued. This might be true, but the nuclear plane remained a pipe dream (and for good reasons, one might add). In addition, the company pointed at the ongoing work on flying boats in the US. Well, with the benefit of hindsight it is easy to make fun of this. And of course Saunders-Roe had a vested interest in gaining public support for its flying boat projects. I just found this interesting to read. It reminds us how difficult it is to predict the future course of technological developments when there were still seemingly sound arguments in favor of flying boats in 1954. Ole
