Sikorsky Bolshoi (“Grand”)

In 1912 Igor Sikorsky, chief engineer at the Russo-Baltic Wagon Works in St Petersburg embarked on the design and construction of the world’s first four-engined aircraft. A huge machine by the standards of the time, it was appropriately named the “Bolshoi” (“Grand”) – although sceptics, convinced that it could never fly, dubbed it the “Petersburg Duck”. Sikorsky proved them wrong on 10 […]

Short Sunderland

Few warplanes have been as graceful as the Short Sunderland flyineg boat, nor as consistently effective in performance. Evolved from the same company’s stately Empire flying boats, the Sunderland entered service with RAF Coastal Command in June 1938 as a long-range reconnaissance and antisubmarine patrol aircraft. When war broke out the following year, it became a vital element in Britain’s desperate struggle to keep […]

Handley Page V/1500

The V/1500 was Britain’s first four-engine strategic bomber. It was built in response to an Air Ministry request for a long-range aircraft to “seriously worry Germany in centres where she felt herself perfectly safe from aerial attack”. The aircraft was specifically designed to be capable of bombing Berlin from bases in East Anglia. Hundley page responded with the largest British aeroplane produced during […]

Dornier Rs.II

During World War I German engineer Dr Claude Darnier produced the first of the flying boats that would eventually win him fame. These giant aeroplanes reflected his abiding interest in metal as a material for aircraft construction, as well as his desire to work on a grand scale. The Rs.I, which Dornier built at the Zeppelin-Werke Lindau on Lake Constance in 1915, was […]

Vickers Vimy

Designed late in World War I as a strategic bomber, the Vickers FB.27 Vimy had excellent handling and impressive lifting capacity for its size, carrying a 2,476lb bombload. It entered service with the RAF too late for active participation in the war, but was rescued from obscurity by two record-breaking long-distance flights in 1919. On 14-15 June 1919 pilot Captain […]

Airco D.H.9A

The Airco D.H.9 was designed as an improvement upon the same company’s successfuI day bomber,  the D.H.4. In particular, the pilot’s and observer’s cockpits were moved closer together, improving in- fligh communication between the  two crew members. Unfortunately when first introduced in 1917, the D.H.9’s performance proved inferior to the earlier machine. This was rectified by replacing its problematic Siddeley engine with the American […]

Sopwith Camel

The famous Sopwith F.1 Camel destroyed more German aircraft than any other World War I fighter, although it also had an unfortunate reputation for killing its own pilots. It was named for the “hump” over the two Vickers machine guns mounted in front of the cockpit. The aircraft was powered hy a rotary engine, and engine, armament, and pilot were all concentrated at the […]

Heinkel He 178

The Heinkel He 178 was the world’s first aeroplane to fly purely on turbojet power. It was mi experimental prototype built to test feasibility of the jet engine developed by Dr Hans von Ohain. Apart from its powerplant, it was a conventionally designed, small monoplane with a duralumin fuselage and a mainly wooden wing. The engine’s air intake was located in the nose. […]

Douglas DC-3

The most famous piston-engined airliner of all time, the DC-3 was tough, versatile, and economical – a masterpiece of functional design. It was an enlarged version of Douglas’s already successful DC-2, produced in response to a request from American Airlines president, C.R. Smith, for an aircraft to offer comfortable overnight travel. By increasing the length and girth of the DC-2’s fuselage, Douglas made room for […]

Tarrant Tabor

The enormousTabor biplane was the first and last aeroplane made by W.G. Tarrant of Byfleet, Surrey, whose normal business was building houses. Designed by Walter Barling, it was intended for British bombing raids on Berlin but it was still under construction by the time World War I ended. The aircraft’s name, meaning a type of small drum, probably alluded to […]
