What's this all about?

If you are of fifty to fifty - five years of age, you may have childhood memories of the last Schneider Trophy Contest, in which a British seaplane gained permanent possession of the trophy. Perhaps you were one of the lucky few to see the gleaming blue and silver Supermarine S - 6B hurtle through the air at a then breathtaking speed. Or did you hear the excited voice of the BBC commentator become drowned in the roar of the superb Rolls - Royce engine that carried the S - 6B to victory ?


( ... ) The author's history of the Schneider Trophy Contests starts with the first realisation of powered flight on December 17th, 1903, and traces the early development of marine aviation, leading to the Schneider Trophy Contests and their impact on the evolution of high speed aircraft and the engines that powered them.


Whatever your age, if you have an interest in aviation this most readable book will either reawaken old memories or provide a fascinating glimpse of the development of airframes and engines. ( ... )
