Dunne Tailless Aeroplane

Fokker E. III

Germany’s Fokker monoplanes dominated the skies over the Western Front from July 1915 to early 1916.

It was only after examining a […]

Boeing B-47

The futuristic-looking B-47 Stratojet bomber formed the core of the United States’s nuclear bomber force in the 1950s. It proved to be a revolutionary aircraft in both design and performance. When Boeing set out to create a jet -powered multi-engine bomber for the US Army Air Force in 1944, the designers though in terms of a straight-winged aeroplane such as the B-29 Superfortress. After […]

Ilyushin Il-2 Shturmovik

For mximum protection during ground-attack operations, the crew and engine were enclosed in a “bathub” of heavy armour plate, to which the […]

Friedrichshafen G. III

From the beginning of hostilities the German Army was keen to deploy large-sized, long-range aeroplanes as strategic bombers. Flugzeughau Friedrichshafen was one of several German aircraft manufacturers that struggled to supply a suitable Grossflugzeug (large aeroplane). Their first aircraft, the G.I of 1914, failed to go into production. Its successor, the G. II of 1916, entered service in limited numbers, but was […]

Paulhan-Tatin Aero-Torpille

One of the more conspicuous machines at the French military aeroplane trials in October 1911 was the Paulhan-Tatin Aero- Torpille (acro-torpedo). It was designed by veteran flight experimenter Victor Tatin, and built by Louis Paulhan, then France’s most famous young aviator. This happy collaboration of youth and age produced a sleek, streamlined monoplane that was in some ways ahead of its time. […]

Consolidated B-24 Liberator

More Consulidated B-24 Liberator bombers were built during World War II than any other American aircraft. The Liberator’s most striking feature was a high-mounted, high-speed wing that reduced drag and contributed to the aircraft’s exceptional range. Also,  the two-section bomb bay in its fuselage accommodated an 8000lb bombload – double that of a B-17. The Liberator was used for reconnaissance, transport, and maritime […]

Junkers J.4

In 1917-18 the German Army’s “stormfliers” were a potent element in warfare in the Western Front. These death-defying aircrews flew in close support of infantry, descending low over the trenches during heavy ground-fighting to attack enemy troops with strafing, fragmentation bombs, and grenades. The armoured, all-metal Junkers biplane was their favourite mount; although heavy and cumbersome, it could carry them unscathed through a […]

Bristol F.2B Fighter

The Bristol Fighter was one of a new generation of British aircraft deployed on the Western Front in 1917, Designed by Captain Frank Barnwell, it was a solid, versatile, two-seater fighter-reconnaissance aeroplane with excellent all-round performance. The first version, the F.2A, made its maiden flight on 9 September 1916; the faster F.2B followed shortly after. When the Bristol Fighter first entered service with the […]
