In this heavily illustrated book, the author records the history of a unique period in the story of aviation. For a brief period of 40 yrs, the flying boat and its smaller counterpart, the float plane, were a familiar part of the flying scene. They pioneered the air routes of the world in peace, and roved the oceans protecting shipping in time of war. The famous float plane Supermarine S6B won the Schneider Trophy outright for Britain and proved to be the test-bed for the magnificent Spitfire of World War ll. The book tells these stories and more with great text and illustrates the test with many rare photos.
