The Unbelievable Twin Beaver Story - A Most Impressive Piece Of Work!

The Unbelievable story of the Twin Beaver can be found over at VintageWings.ca
 

 Some of you reading this will already know how unbelievable the story of the Twin Beaver is... and how so few of us knew anything about this incredible project before the amazing story surfaced over at VintageWings.ca early in April of this year. Wow, how could such a fascinating aircraft be so unknown to even the most ardent of avgeeks? Well, to understand that you really need to read the amazing in-depth story that chronicles the wild adventures of twin brothers Dieter and Martin Zwillingsbiber from the mid 40's thru the 60's. (click the VintageWings link to read the extensive story)

 

If it turns out that you're unable to spend the time to read the rather long story of the Twin Beaver at VintageWings.ca, I very highly recommend that you follow this link when you are done here to see what has become of the Twin Beaver today!


 Wow, I knew nothing at all of the unbelievable Twin Beaver until early April of 2012


 I must say I've seen a tremendous of amazing aviation work in my 51 years but the work exhibited by the Twin Beaver project is right up there as 'most impressive'. Even tho the performance of the aircraft was never up to what it should have been or really needed to be, the creativity, engineering, and dedication to bring the Twin Beaver to life is so impressive that I can only hope that one day I will achieve such great heights. My hat is off to the brilliant mind or minds that are responsible for what we now know as the Twin Beaver... Bravo!


 Thank you Vintage Wings of Canada for your part in this amazing story!

Wonderful story of a pair of fine engineers! There sure must have been a lot of "research" done on the long article. The photographs are very interesting and are "well done". Any chance you could dig up the story about the ill-fated Twin Flying Pinto?

What an astonishing bit of research. The photographs are superb. Kudos to Mr. Yellamo and his alter-ego for the work involved.
