Flere oplysninger:

The Beechcraft Model 17 Staggerwing is a classic American biplane that was first flown in 1932. It was designed by Walter Beech as a luxury aircraft for business executives and wealthy travelers. The Staggerwing had a unique feature of having the lower wing set farther forward than the upper wing, which improved the pilot’s visibility and reduced drag. The Staggerwing was also one of the fastest and most powerful civilian aircraft of its time, capable of reaching speeds of over 200 mph and carrying up to five passengers. The Staggerwing was used for various purposes, such as air racing, military service, aerial photography, and bush flying. It was also popular among celebrities and dignitaries, such as Amelia Earhart, Howard Hughes, and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Staggerwing is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful and elegant aircraft ever built, and many examples are still flying today.
