The wartime Staaken bombers took contemporary wood construction to its limit and produced useful operational night bombers. The next step was to develop Rplanes with high enough performance to enable daytime bombing, and that required the best technology then available. These were designed during the war but too late for construction. In 1919 Staaken designed the modern allmetal E.4/20 passenger plane development of this research. Above, with open pilot's cockpit and an airspeed indicator on its wing, is the stunning, highperformance result. (PM Grosz Collection/STDB)

The ZeppelinStaaken company received allmetal technology from its ZeppelinLindau sister company and built the remarkable allmetal Staaken E.4/20 monoplane as a result. Built as a transport due to the armistice, it was faster than contemporary fighter planes such as the Spad 13. The E.4/20 was the world's first allmetal 4engine cantilever monoplane and the ancestor of all modern 4engine transports. (PM Grosz Collection/STDB)
