many will "come back" through a
i daring and impregnable position in
i aerial navigation have been ex;
pressed in both the French and English
press following the discovery by
allied commissioners of newly dej
velopcd powerful German^ planes
f built entirely of metal. Warnings
i have been sounded from time to
i time that Germany was preparing
f for a greater air supremacy through
: the perfection of these planes,
adaptable either to military or com
mercial uses, and official notice %Nas
1 taken in the chamber of deputies in
a speech by M. Flandrin, under secretary
for aeronautics. At the same
time the Excelsior, the French pictorial
daily, issued a full page of |
pictures showing the new designs j
complete, constructed of a light j
metal called duralumin.
Keep Treaty Term*.
In accordance with the Versailles
treaty Germany must not only surj
render all aerial military equipment
Ibut she must cease all production of
planes for military uses. M. Flandrin
explains that Germany had developed
these advanced models at
the signing of the armistice, but
that the delivery of them to the allied
governments along with other
war material was unsatisfactory.
"Work may have stopped on thes^
planes," M. Flandrin t-tated. "but
the actual progress of experimentation
on products and designs for
construction is ftll1. one of the greatest
activities among the scientific
men of Germany and especially in
the research laboratories of the unt-y
"Germany hopes, without doubt,
to rebuild her ait fleet, and this
Beet will have the incontestable advantage
of being Cfmpf>sed of the
very best and most modern types
They will piobably baptize It th'
Commercial aerial fleet,' <>r *,ie
civil aerial fleet.' but when one
realizes the facility with which an
airplane of peace can be turned
Into an airplane of war. it is easy
to see at tha bottom of this project
only a menace and a warning for
the other nations of Europe.
Th? planes have been built after
designs by the German Professor
Jankers. In both monoplane and biplane
models. In the air they aPpear
more like birds than any other
type of machine. There is not a
strut or a wire support and the Interior
of the wings are re-enforced
by light metal tubing. In this
space is kept the tanks for oil and
fuel and replacement apparatus.
The monoplane propelled by a
160-horsepower engine reached a
height of 4.500 meters carrying a
load of six passengers. The same
plane with a 185-horsepower engine
carried eight passengers up 7.000
meters and its speed was 160 kilometers
per hour. Both in these biplane
and monoplane designs the
French and British experts say the
Germans are far In advance of the
Followers of English aeronautics
lament the fact that development
of aviation has been arrested
since the armistice, and one writer
in the London Times describes the
new German metal planes In an attempt
to awaken interest of British
designers. The writer takes
the position that England should
hold no grievance against Germany
for aiming at aerial domination,
since commercial flying is the heritage
of all countries, but he warns
of the seriousness of continued apathy
and Indifference toward the
already advanced German designs.
