The Dornier aircraft were produced by Claude (Claudius) Honoré Desiré Dornier. He was mostly famous for building large metal flying boats.
One of these was the twelve engine Dornier Do X (see photo below) which was for many years the world's largest and most powerful airplane.
The Dornier Do J
The Dornier Do J was more affectionately known as "the whale".
This aircraft was built in Italy in 1922 and had two piston engines mounted on the wing.
One engine powered a tractor propeller and the other a push propeller.
It was the Do J that made the first successful Transatlantic crossing between Spain and South America in 1926.
Dornier Do 24
The Do 224 was originally built for the Netherlands navy.
This airplane was equipped with 4 machine guns, 1 @ 30mm cannon and 600 kgs of bombs.
The Do 228 was a development from the Do 227 which was a single engine aircraft.
There were 18 different variants of the Do 228 including two turboprop Skyservant airplanes.
The first basic Do 328 flew in December 1991 and entered commercial service in October 1993.
They are designed to seat three across with the option to have four seats.
The Dornier Do 328 is 21 meters long, wingspan is 21m, has a maximum speed of 620 km/h, a flying range of 1850 kms and can reach a service ceiling of 9455 meters.
Fairchild-Dornier 328 Corporate Jet
Next in our series of Dornier Airplane Photos is
the Fairchild-Dornier corporate jet which is basically the same as the Do 328 except for the jet engines.
This jet could fly at 405 knots or 750 km/h at a distance of 3705 kms.
This was the last commercial airplane to be made by Fairchild-Dornier as it was not a great success to the airline industries.
Dornier Do 28 G 92
The Do 28 G 92 is a Slovakian conversion of the original Dornier Do 28.
The converted airplane was used for skydiving operations.
Notice that the engines are not mounted to the wings however they are mounted to the sides of the fuselage.
