Polikarpov DI-1

Polikarpov DI-1

Polikarpov DI-1 (also known as 2I-N1, _ru. Поликарпов ДИ-1 (2И-Н1)) was a prototype Soviet two-seat fighter of the 1920s. First flown in 1926, DI-1 achieved performance comparable to single-seat fighters of the time due to light weight. The savings were achieved by carefully selecting airframe components to meet calculated durability requirements. However, during the ninth test flight on 31 March 1926 the aircraft suffered catastrophic failure of the top wing due to production defects and was destroyed along with its crew of two. The project was abandoned following the crash but certain design elements were carried over into the future Polikarpov aircraft.cite book|author=Shavrov V.B.|year=1985|title=Istoriia konstruktskii samoletov v SSSR do 1938 g.
