E. 5a, one of the best known combat airplanes of the First World War, was one of those rather typical British military aircraft, designed for functional instead of aesthetic purposes. Squarish and angular, it had none of the streamlined grace of the German Albatros nor the petite elegance of the French Nieuport. Viewed from the front the S. E. 5 rather resembled a farm tractor with wings. But, what It's design lacked in aesthetics was more than made up for in performance. It was fast, capable of making or breaking combat at will. It was sturdy, able to absorb a good deal of punishment; and its pilots could enter a high speed dive with the confidence that the S. E. 5's wings would stay on. " The book includes information on prototype development, the S. E. 5 and the S. E. 5a, engine and structural problems, specifications, the S. E. 5b, Two seat trainers, and postwar employment. Scores of b/w photos and a two-page centerfold with ten full-color drawings by Kevin Wornkkey of different permutations of the planes. Seller Inventory # 42317
