YouTube - RC PLANE CRASH - LARGE SCALE MODELS DISINTEGRATE














"thinking outside the box"
The material in this book is a compilation of computer generated images, hand generated sketches  and engineering data, gleaned from hundreds of pages of documentation in the public domain, about the many research projects conducted in Germany through the course of the second world war. Most of the aircraft under development were constructed of non strategic materials, such as wood and composites. As the end approaches in 1945 the projects take on an ever increasing tone of desperation, which is reflected in the extremely non conventional nature of the aircraft designs. The engineers and scientists working on these research projects were to use a modern phrase "thinking outside of the box". The flight testing aspect of these radical designs were extremely dangerous to the flight crews, who incidentally were in a large part women. All of the experienced pilots were engaged in operational duties and could not be spared for test pilot duties. Many of the projects were destroyed in bombing raids by the quickly advancing Allied forces and their existence would have been obliterated from history had it not been for the teams of engineers and scientists who were tasked to gather information by interviewing the personnel who worked on these projects. The volunteers at Luft '46 are dedicated to the preservation of this aeronautical history​

Admiral Kerr's Gigantic HP V/1500 Atlantic Flies in the Opposite Direction


A group of young boys are swept up in the excitement that swirled around the frantic preparations for the Greatest Air Race of them all.   Ike is a boy born and raised on the wrong side of town, suddenly thrust into manhood by the untimely death of his father.  He finds a distraction from his pain when he and his young friends assume a pivotal roll in history by supporting the competing race air teams.

Our story begins where it left off in part 1.

Eric our hero was soon to turn fourteen. A few short months earlier he he was forced to quit school, take a job in order to help his family after his father who, died suddenly of the deadly Spanish flu. Since Eric thought that his name was more suited to that of a boy he asked of all around him, that he be referred to as Ike.
Ike and his friends developed in intense interest in the air race that was shaping up in their town. They had visited the centers and bases of the ``birdmen``, as the local population called new airplane visitors from away. Ike had been to Glendenning farm at Mount Pearl and met the members of the Sopwith Atlantic team, as well as their pilot Harry Hawker and his navigator Mac Grives. They had witnessed the arrival the massive Curtiss Flying Boats of the Americans at Trepassey; greeted the arrival Raynham and Morgan`s big Rolls Rice powered  Martinsyde biplane and; the gigantic Handley-Page V/1500 four engine Berlin bomber of Admiral Kerr.
They were there trying their best to prevent the inevitable disaster with the giant American ``ace in the hole`` entry, the C 5 airship of Commander Richard Byrd at Pleasentville in Quidi Vidi. They waited patiently for news of the missing Sopwith which disappeared somewhere in the stormy North Atlantic with Harry Hawker and Mac Grieves on board.
