Thomas-Morse S-5

Profile: Wings Palette http://wp.scn.ru/en/ Following tests at Cayuga Lake with the prototype S-4 fitted with twin floats, six S-5s (BuA-757/762) were built in 1918 for the Navy. These were basically S-4Bs with triple floats copied from the Sopwith Baby and were used at NAS Dinner Key, Miarni. At least one (A-758) flew with a revised rudder which was taller, but of reduced span. For more profiles of this aircraft, Double-click on the link below: http://wp.scn.ru/en/ww1/o/762/3/0#3
