Biplanes, Triplanes and Seaplanes
| Total Clicks: 4741 | Report Broken Link |
by Jim Winchester
Hardcover: 256 pages
Publisher: Thunder Bay Press (November 9, 2004)
ISBN: 159223223X

Biplanes and seaplanes dominated early aviation. The flying surfaces on biplanes added strength to the structure and provided extra lift to compensate for comparatively small engines, while seaplanes were favored for the unlimited space water provided for long take-off runs. This is an extensive guide to more than 120 biplanes, triplanes, and seaplanes, from early designs such as the Wright Flyer to jet flying boats and timeless classics like the Tiger Moth and the Curtiss JN-4 "Jenny." 600 color and archival black-and-white photographs are featured in this extraordinary book.
