Vintage French-built aircraft soaring through the clouds in a soft blue sky... so dreamy :) Photo 1: This is a photo of a reproduction airplane of the French-built Spad VII from 1917. The name SPAD comes from Societé Anonyme pour l’Aviation et ses Derives (Society for Aviation and its Derivatives), the name of the company for which it was built. The Spad VII had excellent diving ability and strength. It was also quite fast and was used quite successfully by France’s top pilots of of World War I including Georges Guynemer. Photo 2: This is a photo of an original open cockpit 1929 "New Standard D-25". When the first Civil Aviation regulations went into effect, old war-surplus airplanes that barnstormers were using to give rides with had to be replaced. The D-25 was designed expressly for the barnstormer by Charles Day. It was easy to fly, operated out of the smallest fields with its big, high-lift wings, featured a rugged wide-stance landing gear for rough farmer’s fields and used modern (1928) construction techniques. Best of all it doubled the payload of the "old" Standard with room for four paying passengers instead of two per flight.
