    I think it is very poor manners to display pornographic material.

    And not give details, so fetishes can be satisfied.

    The Aeronautical Style Secretariat (ASS) will be contacting you directly.

    Re: German flying wing

    I wish I had more info. I only know it is German by the registration number on the bottom of the wing.

    Looks like someone was inspired by the Atlantica and succeeded.

    Doubtful. Looking at what's visible of the root profile and the amount of twist, it appears to be another Horten disciple. The Atlantica was also a blended-wing-body. This is not.

    Re: German flying wing

    Yeah, I'm with Topaz, looks Horten-derived to me too. There was a Horten-approved wing called the PUL-10, I don't know if this is a follow-on to that or an entirely new design.

    The Germans made an interesting aircraft called the Speed Canard, which was a sexed-up Long-EZ using a 2 seat Grob glider fuselage. The photo of the aircraft above looks a lot like a canard-less version of the Speed Canard.

    Considering the fact that only scientists and technophiles and aero engineers are interested in flying wings, the aircraft in the photo may well be the rare and mysterious "Speed Can-Nerd"

    Reminds me of when I first saw the BD-5 with V-tail. It immediately draws you in.

    I can't quite read the registration. If we could, we could probably look it up.
