  • $\begingroup$ I don't think this should be marked as a duplicate. The other question asks why biplanes used to be more prevalent; this one asks why monoplanes are more prevalent now. (As of right now, this question also asks why biplanes used to be more prevalent, but I submitted an edit suggestion to remove that paragraph.) $\endgroup$ Nov 24, 2018 at 5:34
