Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bach Air Yacht was a trimotor airliner produced in the United States in the 1920s. Typical of its day, it was a high-wing braced monoplane, with fixed tailwheel undercarriage. Unusual for airliners of the late 1920s, (due to legislation that forbade carrying passengers in wooden aircraft), the Air Yachts were constructed almost entirely from wood with steel fittings, undercarriage and struts. Different models were powered by varying combinations of Wright, Ryan-Siemens, and Pratt & Whitney engines, a large engine in the nose of the aircraft and two smaller "helpers" under the wings in nacelles supported by struts. As with so many aircraft companies of the late 1920s the Bach Aircraft Company succumbed to the Great Depression, thus further development of the Air Yacht was abandoned after the 3-CT-9.show more
