Beech-Staggerwing

Thumbnail
Very few pre-war biplanes had enclosed cabins and fewer still had a retractable undercarriage; the four-seater Beech-17 'Staggerwing' had both. It was something of a misnomer as many biplanes had upper and lower wings staggered but the Beech reversed the usual layout by staggering the upper pair behind the lower.

DeHavilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide

Thumbnail
The de Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide was a British short-haul passenger airliner of the 1930s. Designed by the de Havilland company in late 1933 as a faster and more comfortable successor to the DH.84 Dragon, it was in effect a twin-engined, scaled-down version of the four-engined DH.86 Express. It shared many common features with the larger aircraft including its tapered wings, streamlined fairings and the Gipsy Six engine, but it demonstrated none of the operational vices of the larger aircraft and went on to become perhaps the most successful British-built commercial passenger aircraft of the 1930s. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Goodyear Inflatoplane

Thumbnail
As well as their famous blimps, the Goodyear Company built military aircraft under licence, such as versions of the Vought Corsair. Of course, what they really wanted to do was build rubber aeroplanes and they got their chance in the 1950s. The US Army was particularly open to new ideas and sponsored development of the Inflatoplane (sometimes called the Inflatibird). Goodyear claimed it was 'suitable for all types of Army field operations, particularly reconnaissance'. MODEL NOT YET AVAILABLE.

Lockheed Explorer

Thumbnail
There was great hope for the Lockheed Explorer, with designs on Antarctic exploration, and Trans-Pacific flights. But alas, the Explorer model turned out to be the least successful of all Lockheed's great early planes. A total of four Explorers were built and all four crashed. Even tho it sure was a good looking 1920s airplane. A cartoon cutout model of Roscoe Turner (Google him :) and his lion mascot is included.
