GZ had catapults and arrestor wires. Remember also that take off run is usually measured in still air whereas in most cases there would be at least 20 knots wind over the flight deck just due to the ships forward motion.Michel Van said:i notice here a another problem:
The aircraft Carrier "Graf Zepplin" had planed, a flightdeck of 240 meter (787 ft) long
can a Twin-engined Aircraft takeoff and Landing on this short stretch ?
or was STOL demanded in advertised bidding of Reichs Luftfahrt Ministerium or Kriegsmarine ?
I have always been curious about Arado's submissions for the Graf Zeppelin, but have never been able to find them. Thank you.I've done a bit more.
Is there any more background history info for the Fieselers?
I've done more on those too. I will post soon.
Yes Peter,Regarding the Fi 8-P19 please.
Due to the year of the drawing, am I correct in assuming all movable surfaces would have been fabric covered? Plus where would any armament have been housed if any was planned?
Whereas the 22 A and C would have been all metal?
Plus if anyone has any markings/emblem suggestions please, I would be 'all ears and eyes'.
actually it was Cocaine solution to wash his Nose...You should go read Hitler's medical history ... morning injections of cocaine, etc.
i think that after Arado lost against Messerschmitt Me-210, they try to get contract for the Aircraft carrier, only to face Göring "Everything that Fly in Reich belongs to ME !!!"I have always been curious about Arado's submissions for the Graf Zeppelin, but have never been able to find them. Thank you.
