WINGS or RELATED SITES
|The Advanced Theater Transport concept - A powerful aircraft that could tilt its wings to give it what's called "super short take off and landing." By being able to operate on short, unprepared runways of between 650 to 1,000 feet, it could serve as an alternative to rotor-wing heavy lifters in certain battlefield situations.|
|CC&F would ultimately build a total of eight aircraft on a Burnelli-based design. The last was the Loadmaster I (pictured below) of 1946. The aircraft met the conditions which permitted a Canadian type certificate to be issued, but did not enter production. Manufacturing rights reverted to Ballard Aircraft Corporation.|
|In 1991 a team of aviation specialists formed what is now called HORTEN Aircraft®. From the beginning we have set out to design a flying wing for the general aviation public. It has been our intention to apply the most advanced and innovative technology to our flying wing designs.|
||This appears to be a site originating out of Japan that contains a large collection of Northrop pictures covering all the aircraft from the N-1 to the B-2. Some of the pictures may be large in both file and presentation size, so you may want to experiment a little before rummaging around too much.|
||On June 25, 1946, his XB-35 Flying Wing bomber lifted majestically from the run way of the Northrop Aircraft Co. and made its maiden flight to Edwards AFB (then Muroc Army Air Field). In this photo, taken from the escorting P-61, the XB-35's eight contra-rotating propellers are seen to advantage. Four Pratt & Whitney R-4360 Wasp Major engines each drove a pair of four-bladed propellers rotating in opposite directions by means of an extension shaft and specialized gear box.

||There are several pictures here of the Burgess-Dunne airplane. We hope they give you a pretty good idea of what has been involved in building this replica. In September 2000 a special outdoor display of the finished plane was done. Several pictures of that event have been put here and you can find them all together labelled "Sept 2000 Display".|
||This web site is dedicated to the Messerschmitt Me 163B Komet, the only operational rocket- powered aircraft of the second world war. Its spectacular performance (both speed and climb rate) and dangers (because of the highly explosive rocket fuels) make it a fascinating piece of aviation history.|
||The Future Aircraft Technology Enhancements (FATE) Program was sponsored by Wright Laboratory (WL) FI in Dayton, Ohio. A subset of the national Fixed Wing Vehicle (FWV) Program, FATE was performed to “develop revolutionary technologies that will become the foundation for next generation warfighters.” (Click the icon for this part of a slide presentation that covers the benefits of tailless configuration technologies.

||Preface: This text was developed for a course in applied aerodynamics at Stanford University. The first year graduate course includes topics ranging from a review of the basic, governing equations of fluid flow to practical issues related to airfoil and wing design. This digital text is intended to supplement a more conventional textbook in applied aerodynamics. The material has been composed based on lecture notes over the last few years and is continually under development, so your comments and suggestions are helpful. Clicking on the icon takes you to the tailless section. Clicking here will take you to the basic document.|
to the pages of this site. Here we will introduce you to some rather
flying machines, the "flying wings" created by Charles Fauvel. This
formula, applied to light airplanes and gliders, has the peculiarity of
using the wing both for lift and for stability, unlike the more
machines equipped with a horizontal empennage.
For the moment our site is in French only. It will be tran- slated into English as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you can use one of the automatic translators available on the Internet, but the result are sometimes strange...or funny ! (Site of Christophe Bordeaux)
||PUL-10 - One of the last designs by Reimar Horten currently under development testing by the team of Bernhard Mattlener and Reinhold Stadler in Germany. For more on this interesting design and all the technical data try the Nurflugel.com page provided the Douglas Bullard.|
||Smithsonian National Air & Space Museum's Paul Garber facility. This site was visited by Doug Bullard while returning from the 1997 Flyng Wing Symposium held at the National Soaring Museum at Harris Hill, New York. He took an extensive collection of pictures covering the many restoration projects in progress or waiting their turn. To see this fabulous collection go to Nurflugel.com.|

no political statement but he is aware that some people may be offended
by subjects and/or titles displayed (it is assumed this is due to the

In the future I will add a listing of Flying Wing references I have collected over the years.
BASE - This is a site for hang gliders and micro lights like the
and Carbon Dragon.
Parts of these pages are in foreign languages, but much of it is in English and contains many excellent pictures of tailless hang gliders and para gliders.
It looks like fun just to roam around the various sections and view the spectacular scenery over which these enthusiasts fly.

In 1974, Rohr Chairman Burt Raynes resolved to move Rohr into the light airplane market. In order to succeed, Rohr had to offer a product so undeniably superior to its competition that prospective buyers and dealers could not resist it. Raynes summoned Walt Mooney and told him to come up with a quantum leap in light aircraft technology. It must have better performance, greater safety, accessibility and comfort, greater economy and lower production cost than any competitor. Picture #1, Picture #2, Picture #3

||Through this site, Eduardo wants
to offer you some three view drawings in bitmap format of some popular
and other not so popular airplanes for your own use such as making your
own plans for flying models particularly or any other use.
He knows these drawings are somewhat simple and the lines are kind of serrated rather than continuous, but this is bit map format and helps him transfer them faster. You will have to print them, enlarge them and transfer them by pencil to improve them. This is the best he can do for the time being.
Photographs for these airplanes you can easily get by browsing in search engines seeking for the plane designation or name or make such as: (F-16 or F16) near (photo or drawing or picture or gif or jpg), or going through the links down at the end of his page.
So far he has about 196 3-views in his collection and is always looking for more, so if you have something you can transfer to him, he's sure to appreciate it.
MARSKE now has a web site for his products (other than
This site includes most anything you want to know about the Pioneer and Monarch sailplanes and how to get kits. There is also a lot of information about his recent workshops and probably when the next one will be held. These appear to have been very popular workshops, lasting from 1 to 3 days, covering subjects you can use to build your Marske design or other favorate project.
