An aircraft fairing is a structure whose primary function is to produce a smooth outline and reduce drag.
The Argus As 8 was a four-cylinder, air-cooled, inverted inline aircraft engine produced in Germany by Argus Motoren in the 1930s.
The BFW M.23, sometimes known as the Messerschmitt M 23, was a 1920s two-seat sporting aircraft designed by Willy Messerschmitt, and produced by ''Bayerische Flugzeugwerke'' (BFW).
The Challenge 1929 was the first FAI International Tourist Plane Contest (Challenge International de Tourisme), that took place between August 4 and August 16, 1929 in Paris, France.
The International Touring Competition in 1930 (Challenge International de Tourisme) was the second FAI international touring aircraft contest, that took place between July 18 and August 8, 1930 in Berlin, Germany.
The Challenge 1932 was the third FAI International Tourist Plane Competition (Challenge International de Tourisme), that took place between 12 and August 28, 1932 in Berlin, Germany.
In aeronautics, chord refers to the imaginary straight line joining the leading and trailing edges of an aerofoil.
A cockpit or flight deck is the area, usually near the front of an aircraft or spacecraft, from which a pilot controls the aircraft.
A folding wing is a wing configuration design feature of aircraft to save space, and is typical of carrier-based aircraft that operate from the limited deck space of aircraft carriers.
The fuselage (from the French fuselé "spindle-shaped") is an aircraft's main body section.
Germany (Deutschland), officially the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesrepublik Deutschland), is a sovereign state in central-western Europe.
In aviation, an inline engine is a reciprocating engine with banks of cylinders, one behind another, rather than rows of cylinders, with each bank having any number of cylinders, but rarely more than six.
Landing gear is the undercarriage of an aircraft or spacecraft and may be used for either takeoff or landing.
A monoplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with a single main wing plane, in contrast to a biplane or other multiplane, each of which has multiple planes.
The radial engine is a reciprocating type internal combustion engine configuration in which the cylinders "radiate" outward from a central crankcase like the spokes of a wheel.
Reinhold Poss (11 September 1897 – 26 August 1933) was a German flying ace and racing pilot.
A rudder is a primary control surface used to steer a ship, boat, submarine, hovercraft, aircraft, or other conveyance that moves through a fluid medium (generally air or water).
The Siemens-Halske Sh 14 was a seven-cylinder air-cooled radial engine for aircraft produced in Germany in the 1920s and 1930s.
A tailplane, also known as a horizontal stabiliser, is a small lifting surface located on the tail (empennage) behind the main lifting surfaces of a fixed-wing aircraft as well as other non-fixed-wing aircraft such as helicopters and gyroplanes.
The vertical stabilizers, vertical stabilisers, or fins, of aircraft, missiles or bombs are typically found on the aft end of the fuselage or body, and are intended to reduce aerodynamic side slip and provide direction stability.
Wilhelm Emil "Willy" Messerschmitt (/'vĭli 'messer shmĭt/) (26 June 1898 – 15 September 1978) was a German aircraft designer and manufacturer.
The wing root is the part of the wing on a fixed-wing aircraft that is closest to the fuselage.
The wingspan (or just span) of a bird or an airplane is the distance from one wingtip to the other wingtip.
