Tsiolkovsky Flying Wing Project
« on: January 26, 2008, 01:46:13 am »
Hi,
Years ago, a friend of mine send me this photo of a flying wing transport aircraft scale-model designed between the wars by a certain Russian engineer named Tsiolkovsky.
I am looking for more information, if any, concerning this project.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks, Michel, indeed it looks something like that.
BTW, I am wondering if, on the photo, the model is not upside down?
