Hey all,
I haven't been on here in a while, been overly busy on a aircraft engineering course trying to get my L.A.M.E. Anyway, Me and a class mate found a interesting aircraft, a very old one. But it had a steam powered engine in it. I was woundering if anyone knew anything about it and could give me some insight on it. Here is a link to the video we found on youtube

Thanks

If you can aquire that plane & it is still intact, you will own a piece of history.
It would be well worth saving.

Somewhere on one of the machinist forums (Practical Machinist ?) there was some discussion about that plane & its advanced? (for its time) propulsion system.
I'll search the archives & see if I can't find some more information. I remember that there were a couple more related video's.
As soon as I can find the links, I'll add them.
Where is the plane now? Is the engine/propulsion system all there?
There are probably people out there that would love to restore that aircraft if it's feasable.
