Product description

Completely Rewritten book about the Dornier warl with new material and pictures.

Full history of the Dornier Wal with pictures, technical drawings and a full production listing. All countries ever operating this technical aviation revolution and commercial aviation pioneer of the 30's are covered and some of the record breaking and flights are covered by way of a day to day diary.
Thanks to the sturdy monocoque design with the characteristic sponsons and the many pioneer flights the Dornier Wal became the most important early flying boat.
In many parts of the world the Dornier Wal represented the beginning of aviation.
For Claude Dornier the Dornier Wal "made" his company.
This books describes besides the pioneerflights, the versital operational possibilities of the Dornier Wal, which remain of interest even for future flying boats.

Many unpublished documents and fotos enrich the book and give new insights.
