    A former U.S. Air Force test pilot, Chuck Tucker had recently tested a low aspect flying wing
   model he designed named Vortex. It was a scaled down prototype of 12 ft. span and  10 ft. chord
   rectangle. The tricycle landing gear had mains, wingtip mounted, and nose, beneath firewall ,
   squared off wingtips and a large center mounted vertical stabilizer, rudder. Chuck's Vortex
  project may have been adopted and ompleted by model club members of Morgan Hill, California
  after He passed away more than a year ago. There were a few photos of Vortex posted at

It seemed to be this series for a Projects or Drawing numbers (Suffix "C").

We must don't forget the PC.1600 heavy fighter Project,which I hope to get a drawing
to it.

Hi,

the Piana Canova PC-85 was a two-seat trainer with a rhomboid wing airplane,I don't know if
it was actually built or not ?.

Hi,

I think we must change this title into Piana Canova Airplanes and Projects.

He started with a  PC-I of 1908,it was a single seat monoplane powered by one engine,
the PC-II was a three-seat monoplane of 1910/11,the PC-III was a seaplane biplane with
swivel fuselage of 1914.

He also designed a three-seat pusher monoplane in 1912.

A jet aircraft with a rhomboid wing was projected,but no more details are known ?.

Hi,

Mr. Piana Canova emigrated to Brazil in 1919 and returned in 1931,if some had
a book about Latin American aviation,we can know his activities about aviation
there ?.
