Umberto di Lazzaro. Schneider Trophy 1927

Umberto di Lazzaro. Schneider Trophy 1927

Piaggio Pegna P.7 of 1929. It was an extremely clever and bizarre idea-instead of using floats like other racing seaplanes, the P.7 got its flotation from the fuselage itself-a true flying boat. In the water, it was driven by a marine-style propeller in the rear. Once it reached enough speed for the fuselage to be lifted up onto the hydrofoils, power was directed instead to the main propeller. The biggest flaw was visibility-the cockpit was in the spray from the hydrofoils.
