Abstract

THE Dornier Do 20 is a logical development from the Wal and Super‐Wal flying‐boats by way of the Do 18. Although the present type is better streamlined than the earlier machine the resemblance is striking and the stages of evolution are worthy of study. A comparison between this latest Dornier flying boat and the Short machines described in Aircraft Engineering last month brings out some noteworthy similarities and differences in the general design and construction.
