Short S.26 Empire
This is actually one of the first aircraft I created for the set back in 2006. It was not included until 2.0 due to the lack of seaplane support in OpenTTD or TTDPatch.
|Aircraft Type||Small (with Seaplane Preview parameter)|
|Capacity||38 pax & 40 mail, or 70 crates of goods|
The era of the Great Flying Boat was relatively short-lived, as the Second World War saw huge improvements to worldwide airport infrastructure and aircraft range. However, for a few years, the Empire Flying Boats were the flagship of the Imperial Airways fleet. They were later developed into the "Sunderland" maritime patrol aircraft, and found moderate post-war airline success on the east coast of Australia.
