Awfully chilly but still looks like fun! I asked builder/pilot Alexey Altukhov about the fairly long engine mount and he said that the wings had been built heavier than per the plans (Using a less expensive but heavier species of wood, I imagine) so he needed to move the engine forward to keep the CG in the right place. Cheers, Matthew

Hey that is a flying car!

I wonder if it is possible to get in Russia dual instruction on a Mignet aircraft, perhaps the pilots taught themselves how to fly them.
I did not thought Mignet aircraft were popular in Russia, or anyplace outside France.

Very cool btw, thanks for sharing!

Hi Matthew, and all pou du ciel afficionados!

thank you for the vid!

now something quite " hors sujet"!

here is a absolute wonderful video , a very big must see!!

a while ago, Alain Mignet made an amazing discovery...

he wanted to paint a wall, in his family house, his grand father'house, Henry Mignet..
he had to move an old cabinet and decided to unfill it before....

let'look at the wonderful result in this (sorry!) french langage movie...

This movie is the reason I should have taken my French language classes more seriously! I was getting tiny parts of it dredged from decades ago memories. If I keep listening, maybe the language will come back to me :)

THANKS for sharing!
