Product description

 The aircraft of the designers Beneš and Hajn have permanently entered the history of Czechoslovak aviation. A number of low-wing aircraft with a thick wing profile, starting with Avia B.H.1, became a phenomenon at a time when biplanes were traversing the European sky. Success in the field of sports, on the other hand, was balanced by the Air Force's distrust of the chosen solution. The return to the biplane concept resulted in the construction of the Avia B.H.21, which was the backbone of the fighter aircraft of the second half of the 1920s and at the right time replaced the old foreign types acquired after the end of the "Great War". The book deviates from established practices and differs from the work of most aviation historians and researchers. It can't be otherwise. A quarter of a century filled with the study of archival materials, period construction procedures and thousands of hours spent in a workshop on the construction of faithful flying replicas of Avia B.H.1 and B.H.5 aircraft led to it. Thanks to this, it was possible to check their properties in the air and get to the heart of the matter. Marcel Sezemský's book takes us back to the time when planes smelled of wood and canvas.
