Bristol Type 175 Britannia je bilo štirimotorno turbopropelersko potniško letalo britanskega proizvajalca Bristol Aeroplane Company. Prvič je poletel 16. avgusta 1952. Med testiranjem so izgubili dve letali zaradi zalejevanja na turbopropelerskih motorjih. Ko je bil razvoj končan, so se že pojavila prva reaktivna potniška letala, zato so zgradili samo 85 letal do leta 1960. Kljub temu je bil sorazmerno uspešen in priljubljen med potniki. Dobil je vzdevek "The Whispering Giant" - "šepetajoči velikan".

Kanadski Canadair je kupil proizvodno licenco in zgradil svoje verzije Canadair CL-44/Canadair CC-106 Yukon in patruljnega Canadair CP-107 Argus.
