I'm taking part in a Project that is mean to make a dream become truth.

Together with a little group of friends from different places in the World, everyone contributing to it, 5 years ago  the Project Savoia S.21 was started.

People from the USA, Italy, Japan, Russia and Brazil are part of it.

Just few names: Jean Luc Mauriat, Ozawa Hideaki, my humble self, Andrey Anenkov, Alice Meniconi and others.

Here some pictures of the Project and calculation phases:

Fantastic images, captain!  Alas I never had the chance to finish my resizing and study of boat planes I wrote about. The problem on my side is the idea was too feeble moneywise, from the start (and the piloting skills of the patron downright inadequate for a trans-pacific flight IMHO), but it looks like in your case your group is committed to finishing the project.

Call me if you need some help.

Impressive! Best of luck with the project, and keep the pics coming!

What are you guys planning engine-wise?

Oh, Bravo! 

Keep the pics (and progress on the build) coming, please!

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.
