Till the end of the January I want to move to the new server http://www.hitechweb.genezis.eu and now I am fixing these bugs, removing two years old statements "comming soon"  :) and so. When I was younger I used VML in my files, so that can be a problem. I hope it will be fixed. More info in "useful links" section soon.

While waiting for Orionblamblam posts...


Found the drawing. Currently scanning. Small problem detected: the original drawing was very large... four or five feet long, and the photocopier was small, so I had to copy it in patches. Seems I missed a bit... the tip of the vertical tail.

Ooops.

Great finding, Paul. My favourite is the attached one. A long way to the pilot's workplace  ;D.

Hi Boxkite!

Interesting picture!  Could this be the world's most massive bi-plane?

Hi Boxkite!

I wonder if there are any three-view line drawings of this aircraft?  It would be kind of neat to see an aircraft like this painted completely white, with "UN" initials painted-on, and then seeing them on humanitarian missions to Africa.
(They'd sure hold a lot of food, medicine and other essential supplies for a lot of people!)
Imagine having to service or change the engines on the top wing!

Yeah, but think of how much payola it could carry for the bureaocrats back at the UN!
