Thread: What would have happened in 1946?

    What would have happened in 1946?

    When the war ended the Germans had so many way out aircraft concepts, that never saw the light of day.

    Until now.

    6 hand built home made miniature gas turbines power this beast.

    ...fortunately for those pilots that were left! Very interesting model Kev, what's it like to fly?

    Sadly not my model. I wish it were.

    This was the maiden flight and resulted in 2 of the 6 turbines flaming out, as you can see in the third picture.

    The pilot said it was very stable but lacked any real grunt. Uprated turbines would help.

    How were they supposed to bail out in case of emergency though.
