Information about FDB-1
Gregor (CCF) FDB-1
The FDB-1 was one of the last biplane fighters developed, first flown in December 1938. It was also one of the cleanest and most beautiful biplane fighters, with an all-round vision, closed cockpit, retractable landing gear, and a gulled upper wing. But it was also clearly an obsolete concept. One built.
