Hydroplane



Welcome to Aviator Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at people and planes from the early days of air travel. We start with this picture from around 1915. It shows A. D. Smith, who was an early Army Test Pilot. He is posed on a Hydroplane he was testing. It looks like it is the wing segment of the plane, with a mounted engine.
