The biplane arrangement allows for a lot of lift with a smaller wingspan, and also contributes to an airplane's maneuverability. It was the mainstay of aircraft in World War I, due in large part to the need for more lift where engines did not supply very high thrust. But through the 1930s, as power plants became more powerful and higher speeds became possible, the biplane was largely phased out in favor of the monoplane. Largely, but not entirely. Biplanes could still be found in the arsenals of air arms world wide as World War II began and some lasted throughout the war. This campaign honors those throwbacks to yesteryear, the biplanes of WWII.
