North American F-100 Super Sabre

The Super Sabre was the first US Air Force (USAF) fighter capable of supersonic speed in level flight. It marked a radical step forward in design from North American’s first-generation jet fighter, the F-86 Sabre. Entering service with the USAF in November 1953, it had a 45-degree swept wing, an underfuselage speed brake, four 20mm cannon, and ranging radar in the upper lip […]

North American P-51 Mustang

Ultimately the greatest long-range fighter of World War II, the P-51 Mustang took some time to find its war-winning final shape. Designed in 1940 to meet an urgent British requirement for an airecraft to equip RAF Fighter Command, it initially proved a partial failure. The advanced laminar-flow wings and streamlined all-metal fuselage made the aircraft fast in low-level flight, but its […]

Felixstowe F.2A

The Felixstowe F.2A was a first-rate flying boat that gave sterling service to Britain’s Royal Naval Air Service on anti-submarine and maritime patrol missions. It derived from the Curtiss H2 “Large America” flying boats supplied to the Royal Navy in early 1917. These American aeroplanes were excellent flyers, but the hull was structurally weak. Squadron Commander John Porte of the Royal Naval Air […]

Boeing 314

The Boeing 314 “Clipper” flying boat was probably the most luxurious passenger aeroplane ever built, This stately giant was created for Pan American, who wanted an aircraft to carry wealthy passengers in comfort and style on transoceanic routes. Boeing married the wings and tailplane of their prototype XB-15 long-range bomber with a massive whale-shaped hull to make a flying boat of breathtaking […]

Wright flyer III

The Wright Flyer III was the world’s first practical powered aeroplane, sturdy enough to withstand repeated flights and able to stay aloft for as long as its fuel lasted. Through a remarkable mix of scientific inquiry and hands-on experimentation, the dauntless American brothers Wilbur and Orville Wright cracked the challenge of sustained, controlled, heavier-than-air flight. At Kill Devil Hills. North Carolina, on 17 December 1903, […]

Lockheed Vega

The stylish Lockheed Vega was a charismatic aircraft that scored high on both looks and performance. Designed by Jack Northrop for the Lockheed Aircraft Company, it was a fast, high-winged monoplane with room for six passengers. The Vega owed its exceptionally clean lines to its smooth semi monococque plywood fuselage, built in two halves in a concrete mould, and its cantilever wing free […]

Fokker F.VII/3m

In the I920s Dutch planemaker Anthony Fokker, who had built aircraft in Germany during World War I, successfully turned to munufacturing civil aircraft in his native Netherlands. His single-engine F.VII airliner, with a Fokker trademark welded-steel-tube fuselage frame, was a huge commercial success in Europe. In an effort to crack the nascent American market, Fokker added two extra engines to the F.VII, creating […]

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 […]
