Load Test On A Fokker E.III
Steel Tube Rudder
After the rudder was loaded to the
required load factor whithout showing any permanent deformation, we continued to load it
to figgure out what will happen when it fails.
Although the rudder finaly was seriously
damaged, the very clever design revealed that it still was easily controlable which proved
that even with that degree of damage the plane still could be landed safely.
