I can't believe I forgot to post this one.


It's an open cockpit, fabric covered, jet-powered, flying wing inspired by a cartoon...

I like the two from Kaman (for a while Connecticut had three companies building helicopters: Kaman in Bloomfield, Sikorsky in Bridgeport, and Doman in Danbury. Where, as a point of trivia, they used to make most of the country's cowboy hats ;)). When I was at Sikorsky, Charlie Kaman had a reputation as being a great guy to work for, and part of his motivation for starting Ovation Guitars was to keep the woodworkers from Kaman employed after they started moving to composite blades. As a minor name drop, for a short time Frank's daughter, Nicole, was a structural engineer at Sikorsky, and we were taking the same class in grad school.
