Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The Dornier Do R4 Nas Superwal was a flying boat, developed in the 1920s with four Napier V Lion piston engines. The Do R could carry 19 passengers in two cabins; 11 in the forward cabin and eight in the rear. Only two Do R4 Nas were build.

This flying boat can only land on water. Use the menubar to define the initial altitude.
