    Hughie, 2 avatars, your version followed by mine (same plane). And they say co-incidences don't happen.

    I've always had a fondness for triplanes...
    such a distinctive silhouette from the front, or side.

    I've never seen that triplane before, but I have often thought the Acrolite 1t would be a fun homebuilt.

    I see your triplane, and present... Supermarine_P.B.31E_Nighthawk.jpg ...a quadraplane, and painfully remembering this: CaproniCa.60.jpg

    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.
