Advances in aviation technology surprise me. Some days it feels like we should all be flying around in flying cars or spaceships. Other days I am fascinated by the aircraft that do fly. Thanks to my friend, Jeff, for sending me a link to this video from the 1930s of a modified Travel Air with a steam engine. Just think... a good number of general aviation planes could be flying around in the skies today with steam engines! I wonder if someone will replicate this early biplane and fly on steam again!?
Another Time is a continuously growing research library focused on aircraft manufactured between 1930 and 1950. We provide detailed information, advertisements, books, drawings and photos to aircraft owners, artists, researchers, restorers, industry writers, etc. Here we post commentary on researching, restoring and flying vintage aircraft from another time.
