I'm going to be out most of the day tomorrow. Will reveal this obscure type so you can move along, it's the Brown SC.
<center>Brown (Ben Brown)</center> <small>Benjamin Brown, Lawrence KS.</small> SC 1931 = 2pOswB; 95hp Cirrus Mark III Hi-Drive; span: 50'0" length: 22'10" load: 440#. A radical, high-aspect-ratio design with a 2'0"-chord top wing that was hardly more than an airfoil-shaped box spar with an aluminum leading edge and a fabric trailing edge. In addition, airfoil lifting struts added to the ship's unusual aspect ratio of 25 (standard gliders settle for 20). Reportedly test-flown briefly, but substantive data are lacking. c/n 1.
Open board please. :wavey:
