Caproni Ca.60 Transaero

With his Ca.60 Transaero, Italian designer and manufacturer Gianni Caproni produced an over-ambitious monster to set alongside Howard Hughes’s notorious “Spruce Goose”. This weird, ungainly craft was inspired by the dream of aeroplanes replacing ocean liners on the world’s major long-distance passenger routes. An enormous “triple triplane” flying boat, the Ca.60 had no fewer than nine wings, arranged in banks of three. The […]

Fokker Dr.I Triplane

A potent little fighter, the Fokker Dr.I triplane proved itself a deadly opponent of Allied scouts, especially in the hands of such master pilots as the legendary “Red Baron”, Manfred von Richthofen. However, the aircraft was dogged by structural weaknesses and, in many ways, was outperformed by its contemporaries. The Dr.1 began as an attempt to replicate Britain’s Sopwith Triplane. Anthony Fokker’s company […]

Pilcher Triplane

Fllight pioneer Percy Pilcher is one of Britain’s unsung heroes. But for a fatal accident it is possible that he, rather than the celebrated Wright brothers, might have solved the riddle of powered, controlled, heavier-than -air flight. Inspired by Lilienthal, Pilcher built four gliders in 1895, the last of which, the Hawk, was the most successful. In 1897, working with engineer Walter Wilson, he […]

The enormousTabor biplane was the first and last aeroplane made by W.G. Tarrant of Byfleet, Surrey, whose normal business was building houses.

The aircraft’s name, meaning a type of small drum, probably alluded to […]

Airbus A380

Cllaimingtobe the most spacious and advanced airliner ever built, the Airbus A380 is the world’s first triple-decked “superjumbo” jet. The only true competitor to the Boeing 747, it has been developed in response to grow ing airport congestion and overburdened air traffic control systems. There are two models, the A380-800 seating up to 555 passengers, and the -800F freighter. The cockpit is set between the […]

Lockheed Constellation

Known affectionately as the “Connie”, the Lockheed Constellation was the most graceful of the great four-engine propliners that opened up intercontinental air routes in the immediate postwar years. With its flowing contours and distinctive triple tail, it had a supremely elegant exterior to match its stylish passenger accommodation. Designed by Kelly Johnson, the Constellation originated in 1939 with a request from TWA for a […]

Chanute biplane glider

In the summer of 1896 French-born  American Octave Chanute, a wealthy railroad engineer who had published a history of flight experiments, camped out on the windswept shore of Lake Michigan, determined to turn his theory into practice. In his mid-60s, Chanute was too old to fly himself, but he was accompanied by young engineer August Moore Herring, who served as his assistant […]

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 […]

Dornier Do X

When the mighty 12-engine Dornier Do X flying boat made its first test flight on 12 July 1929 it was the largest aeroplane in the world. Designed by Claude Dornier to operate on transatlantic routes, this leviathan was built on the Swiss shore of Lake Constance. . The engines were arranged as six tandem pairs on the high, strut-braced, fabric-covered wing. The two-step […]

Savoia-Marchetti S.55

The Italian Savoia-Marchetti S. 55, a wooden twin-hulled flying boat of somewhat unconventional design, earned worldwide fame through a series of record-breaking long-distance flights. Named after its designer, Alessandro Marchetti, and the Savoia company that built it, the S.55 was initially intended as a torpedo bomber for Italy’s naval air force, the Regia Marina. Its t wo engines were mounted back-to-back on pylons […]
