G.Haddow, P.Grosz The German Giants (Putnam)


The Adlershof Projects

The following ten project drawings of R-planes were discovered among a pile of Zeppelin material that had found its way to the Air Museum at Wright Field. Even by today's standards, the size of some of the projected aircraft is immense, these drawings, more than anything else, reflect the thinking of German aeronautical engineers at the time. Unfortunately no information has been found to throw further light on these extremely interesting drawings. Six of the aircraft depicted follow the same twin fuselage configuration, differing in size and horsepower, and these show a strong resemblance to projected designs published by Junkers in the early 1920s. But the only concrete fact, apart from their existence, is that they originated from Adlershof.

G.Haddow, P.Grosz - The German Giants /Putnam/
Adlershof R-plane project. 4/500 h.p. Benz. Span 48-4 m., length 26 m. 7 mg. This drawing shows a striking similarity to that of the Neuber project.
