Lee-Richards Annular Monoplane

Although never mainstream, the notion of making an aeroplane with a circular wing has merit and has intermittently attracted serious flight innovators. British experimenters, Cedric Lee and George Tilghman Richards, designed their first powered annular-winged aeroplane in 1913. The aircraft was built amid great secrecy at Shoreham Aerodrome in Sussex, by Gordon England. Based on two concentric steel-tube hoops, the wing was braced to […]

Focke-Wulf Fw 190

Designed by Kurt Tank, the Fw 190 is considered Germany’s best single-seat fighter of World War II. When the first production model, the Fw 109A-1, entered Luftwaffe service in mid-1941, it took Allied intelligence completely by surprise because its air-cooled BMW radial engine gave il the appearance of an American fighter rather than a German one. Disturbingly for the RAF, the Fw […]

Ryan NYP

In 1927 airmail pilot Charles Lindbergh decided to compete for a $25.000 prize offered for the first person to fly non-stop between New York and Paris. Ryan Airlines of San Diego, California, agreed to build him an aeroplane in 60 days for $6.000 ($10,580 with the engine included). The New-York-to-Paris (NYP) aircraft was based on Ryan’s M.2 high-wing monoplane, but was specially adapted to accommodate greatly […]

Antoinette Monobloc

French aviation pioneers often favoured elegance and ingenuity over plain practicality. The Société Antoinette produced a series of aesthetically satisfying, technically advanced monoplanes designed by engineer and former artist Léon Levavasseur. Sadly, they did not  always fulfil their promise. The Antoinette IV, the company’s first monoplane, famously failed to cross the Channel in July 1909, ditching instead in the sea. It was the pilot on that […]

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. […]

Santos-Dumont Demoiselle

Alberto Santos Dumont’s delicate Demoiselle (“damselfly”) monoplane was the true ancestor of all ultralights. A Brazilian-born Parisian dandy, Santos-Dumont was renowned for airship flights before he turned to creating heavier-than-air machines in 1905. His public demonstration flights in his first powered aircraft during October 1906 – the first in Europe caused a sensation. But this was a clumsy box-kite biplane that, at best, managed […]

Fokker E. III

Germany’s Fokker monoplanes dominated the skies over the Western Front from July 1915 to early 1916. The key to their success was a synchronisation mechanism that allowed the pilot to fire a machine gun trought he propeller arc. The first “point-and-shoot” aeroplane was French – a Morane monoplane with crude bullet deflectors on its propeller blades. It was only after examining a […]

Nieuport 17

The elegant and agile Nieuport single-seaters were the premier French fighters over the Western Front in 1915-16. The type 17, the most famous of the breed, equipped renowned fighter squadrons such as the American expatriate Escadrille Lafayette squadron, and was the mount of many famous air “aces”, including Britain’s Albert Ball and France’s Georges Guynemer. The Nieuports’ most distinctive feature was the “sesquiplane” […]

Hawker Fury

The Hawker Fury was the epitome of the elegant and charismatic single- and two-seat military biplanes that appeared in the late 1920s and early 1930s. It made its debut in 1929 as the wooden-winged Hawker Hornet prototype single-seat fighter. On the strength of the prototype’s performance, Hawker won an initial order for 21 aircraft for the RAF. With a fabric-covered, all-metal […]
