during the 1920's and 1930's, there was the Schneider Cup, a race specifically for seaplanes. Jimmy Doolittle was a winner of the Schneider trophy in 1935. Unfortunately for posterity, the Schneider Cup races did not survive the Great Depression, as lack of sponsors caused the cancellation of the races indefinately.

I suggest we at Fiddlersgreen, aviation buffs as we are, pay homage with our own Schneider Cup airplanes, to be added to the racers collection. hese planes deserve to be immortalized.
