Hi all... Has anyone more details about this obscure 1920s Japanese airliner, the Fukunaga Tenryu 10?
Was it adapted from a foreign design or a genuine local development?
Was it called "Tenryu 10" or "Shizuoka"?
Can't access my library at the moment (I'm in the midst of another address change, packing books and stuff...)
Thanks to you all!
