Caption: Short Mayo Composite aircraft. Historical image of the Short Mayo Composite piggy-back long-range seaplane/flying boat combination. This aircraft was produced by the British Short Brothers in order to provide a reliable long-range air transport service to the United States and the far reaches of the British Empire and the Commonwealth. The two planes were designed to separate in mid-air with the smaller long-range seaplane continuing to its destination, whilst the larger carrier plane returned to base. Image from 'Wonders of Peace and War', by Geza Supka, Hungary, 1939.
