About This File

FS98 Porokhovschikov-2 Bi-Cocque 1914. The first twin-tail biplane in history, built by A. A. Porokhovschikov in 1914. It was the basis for all subsequent twin-tail designs, with innovative fabric-covered tail booms substituting the lattice-structured tails of the time, to reduce air-resistance. It was a two-seat, folding reconnaissance sesquiplane of simple construction, powered by a 50 hp Gnome rotary pusher engine. Top speed was an impressive 99 km/h, 54 knots, for that engine. Its loading capacity was almost equal to its empty weight, and it could be disassembled into a 12x6x6 foot box in five minutes by two people. Lack of agreement with the military for series construction caused the inventor to built the aircraft at his own appartment on the 6th floor. Includes Airport 2.16 scenery for the Komendant's Airfield near St. Petersburg where Porokhovschikov flew his "Dvukhvostka" (twin-tail). Airport and VOD Textures required.
