As regards the internal equipment of the "Super Wal," this is very comfortable for the 19 passengers, the portholes being large and giving a reasonably well-lighted cabin. The actual cabin space is divided into two separate saloons by a smaller compartment, seating accommodation being provided for 11 passengers in the forward saloon and for eight in the aft saloon. The "Super Wal" is very fully provided with navigation and wireless equipment, and the hull contains, in addition to the two saloons, goods and luggage compartments, as well as a wireless and navigator's cabin. The pilots' cockpit is ahead of the wing, and has a "coach roof" over it for the protection of the occupants. The normal quantity of petrol carried is 3,800 litres (836 gallons), and the oil 300"litres (66 gallons).
The main dimensions and weights of the "Super Wal” are as follows :- Length overall, 24-6 m. (80-6 ft.); wing span, 28-6 m. (93-8 ft.); wing area, 143-8 sq. m. (1,547 sq. ft.) Weight empty, 7,800 kg. (17,150 lb.); normal loaded weight, 12,600 kg. (27,700 lb.); wing loading, 17-9 lb./sq. ft; power loading (on 2,000 h.p.), 13-88 lb./h.p.; maximum speed, 220 km. h. (136-5 m.p.h.); cruising speed, 180 km./h. (112 m.p.h.).
The "Super Wal" is a four-engined monoplane flying-boat, with the engines arranged in tandem pairs on top of the wing. Metal construction is employed throughout, even to the wing covering. In the machine exhibited the engines are Gnome-Rhone "Jupiters," but the type has also been produced and flown with great success fitted with four Napier "Lions."
Are you certain that the Wal Mart in is a Super Wal Mart? I don't believe so. The first Super Wal Mart in Alaska just opened last fall in so I would be surprised if the Wasilla one is already a Super Wal Mart - just wondering where you got that info.
