For every success in aviation history, there were new aircraft designs which flew badly (or not at all), crashed on landing, burned up fuel at an alarming rate, exploded without warning, or pointlessly wasted millions of dollars. This book features 150 of the worst aircraft ever to leave the drawing board, from the Seddon Mayfly, which didn’t fly, to a flying tank which surprisingly did. It includes a brief history of each aircraft, explaining why the idea didn’t take off. Each type is illustrated with annotated photography & artwork, highlighting key faults & unusual design features. Also provides an insight into the history & (lack of) development of each type, alongside archive images from the aircraft’s heyday. “A perfect illus. of how not to build aircraft.”
