Short Silver Streak

short-sstreak


Designers began metal construction although Britain tended to redesign biplanes of the wood era in metal. An exception was Oswald Short’s Silver Streak of 1920. An all-metal ‘monocoque’ structure with a duralumin stressed-skin fuselage and wings, but this method was not generally adopted until the 1930s.
