{detailed description}The years between 1919 and 1939 saw the birth, growth and establishment of the aeroplane as an accepted means of public travel. Beginning in the early post-war years with aircraft such as the D.H.4A and the bloated Vimy Commercial, crudely converted from wartime bombers, the airline business gradually imposed its own requirements upon aircraft design to produce, within the next two decades, all-metal monoplanes as handsome as the Electra and the de Havilland Albatross.
The 70 aircraft described and illustrated in this volume include the trailblazers of today's air routes—such types as the Hercules, H.P.42, Fokker Trimotor, Condor, Henry Ford's "Tin Goose" and the immortal DC-3. Here, too, are such truly pioneering types as the Junkers F 13 and Boeing Monomail, and many others of all nationalities, in a wide spectrum of shape and size that ranges from Lockheed's tiny 6-seat Vega to the grotesque Junkers G 38, whose wing leading-edges alone could seat six passengers.
