NICO BRAAS COLLECTION
No. 5041. Flettner Fl 285

https://1000aircraftphotos.com/Contributions/Braas/5041.htm

Quote:
The type was never flown.

THE Fl 282 'KOLIBRI'
http://www.germanaircraftwwii.org/2015/02/the-fl-282-kolibri.html

Quote:
Some 50 pilots were trained to fly it, most of them by Flettner's test pilot, Hans Fuisting. It was extremely manoeuvrable and very stable and at forward speeds in excess of 60km/h (37mph) could be flown hands-off once the controls were balanced. .................

SEA TRIALS
From 1942, trials at sea aboard the cruiser Köln demonstrated that the aircraft was usable even in very poor weather conditions, and by the following year, 20 were in service with the Kriegsmarine in the Mediterranean and the Aegean. In 1944, an order for 1000 Fl 282s was placed with BMW, which began tooling up for production at its Munich and Eisenach plants, but before manufacture could begin, both they and the Flettner works at Johannisthal were very badly damaged by Allied bombing. Anton Flettner went on to design a 20-seat passenger helicopter, the Fl 339, but never got beyond the development stag.

German interest in flying wings and tailless aircraft
http://www.germanaircraftwwii.org/2015/04/german-interest-in-flying-wings-and.html



Quote:
A classic Horten design, the Ho IIIe Motorglider was powered by a Volkswagen engine and was flown during 1944.
Quote:
As World War 2 progressed, German aircraft designers became increasingly convinced that jet and rocket powered tailless designs represented the next generation of high-performance warplanes. Most of the major aircraft manufacturers produced tailless proposals, with many being tested as wind tunnel models. Only a few reached the early stages of construction. Had the war taken a different course and lasted longer, it is a certainty that some of these impressive designs would have entered operational service. Indeed, once hostilities ceased, the Allies wasted no time securing German aircraft research documentation and equipment while making every effort to track down those scientists and engineers who had worked on the most advanced projects.

Messerschmitt Bf 109X

Quote:
After the Focke-Wulf "Fw 190" entered duty with the "BMW 801 A" engine the project "Bf 109 X" was cancelled. The plane was destroyed in early 1942.

Interestingly, the object that comes closest to Rhodes photos didn’t appear in the press until 2000, in Popular Mechanics, America’s Nuclear Flying Saucer

Quote:
William Rhodes saw some strange objects in 1947, which he took pictures of and they got published in the local newspaper.

William Rhodes took two photographs in 1947, this event seemingly covered up and relegated to obscurity. There is not much information on the internet about Rhodes. Below are two links to independently researched articles / blogs.

A buddy built the interior for this boat from scratch, hell he rebuilt the entire boat, a lot of the work just down the street from URY914's house.

Picked up a 2019 CRF250RX Thursday. Brand new model, I'm still breaking it in, but feels very capable. MX motor, best brakes, & lite.
