Abstract

BEARING, as it does, the unmistakable stamp of Dornier design, this flying boat makes a very interesting comparison with their earlier machines—notably the Wal and the Do. 18. In contradistinction to the present general trend in Great Britain and the U.S.A., Herr Dornier has clung to the design involving a high‐wing carried on a strutted superstructure above the hull. This arrangement, judging by the appended performance figures, does not appear to cause any loss of performance although it looks considerably less clean than does a wing mounted directly upon the hull.
