Форум Breguet's Aircraft Challenge

This is the flying boat designed by the ebullient Harry Atwood in reality a heavily modified Curtiss F flying boat built from veneer, where the Carolina Aircraft Company comes in as builder.
  The Carolina Aircraft Company had a speciality with veneer building, so they made this design out of veneer. Of this machine were surprisingly four examples ordered from the drawing board by the US Navy (A 4343/4346), but the first example (and only one built) was way too heavy. It did fly, but far below the specifications of the US Navy. The machine was not accepted and the three others were cancelled.
  So ended the flying boat building career of Harry Atwood, a true icon of the early flying movement in the USA.
