75. AGO C.I
Compared to their Allied counterparts, the German Army Air Service made little use of pusher aircraft in World War One and the AGO C.I remains one of very few such types to enter operational service.Forsaking the open lattice tail arrangement of FEs and Farmans, the Ago solution was much more aerodynamic and robust, the two ply-wrapped tailbooms giving the C.I one of the most readily distinctive outlines of any combat type. The Ago C.I was popular with aircrews and enjoyed a comparatively lenghthy career.Modellers and historians are fortunate that the surviving photographic record for the aeroplane is unusually extensive and author Peter M Grosz has taken full advantage of this rich crop to present this unique presentation of Ago's proudest achievement. Plenty of close-up and structural detail images;six pages of scale plans in two scales;colour notes and profiles. Over 80 stunning images...another classic DATAFILE for your collection.
