Watch this interesting FILM CLIP ...

* The first part shows some Swedish aviation of 1915.

* The second part shows the THULIN aircraft factory 1918.
At about 4:56 you can watch the hi-tech (LOL) method of wing spar testing....
At about 5:44 you can see how well balanced the props were....

All in all, some interesting & unique documentation of yesterday's aircraft making, not least the manufacture of the Thulin radial engines...

Enjoy...!
