Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

I was not aware if anyone had ever shared this video before, but I found it on YouTube while browsing for other flying boats. I thought I would share it here as it is a fascinating 1940's era plane, and one of the biggest flying boats ever built! Capable of speeds up to 500 miles per hour, and able to carry 200 troops over 3,000 miles, it was said that these three monstrous beauties would be able to deliver the same amount of troops in a year as nine of their counterparts! I hope you all enjoy this video, courtesy of Bomberguy.

Ah, forgive me, I didn't know. That was before I discovered this site:) It looks like a good article though, thanks for the link!

Nice video. To serve a (probably) pleasant reminder: the SR.45 Princess has been already featured here.
