Thanks ysi for this piece of laughing on Sunday morning... :-* :D

Though, I object a little: as prooven by the A300/767 then 777, big load does not need many engines nowadays.
All is different with safety: when 2 engines are in a jam on a 2-jet airliner, passengers may die in the crash.
So when Douglas presented the DC-13, the sellers were affirmative: "even if 5 engines are in a jam, the 6Th one will save you, zero risk!"

Love the five engine look.  Five will do a great job, but with six it can grind up even more birds before doing an emergency landing/crash.

A 614 turned normal? they would have been pleasant together, to compare, on an airport or else.

ysi_maniac: Your Advanced Britannia is very nice! You can still recognize the Britannia but somehow the overall effect says 'Tupolev'   :o

How about an advanced Constellation/Starliner with turboprops, swept wings, and swept tail surfaces (retaining three verticals would be optional)?

Yes - Constellation would be super to do..    To still be a Constellation, three tails are required.  A most destinctive feature.
