Archibald said:Edward Lanier "Paraplane".
The Lanier (father and son) were convinced they had invented the best thing since bread came in slice. In fact they just re-invented Handley Page flaps of 1919... in the 40's.
They were aparently inspired by... ice cream cones inherent stability.
At least they build extremely-odd looking aircrafts that were detailed in Le Fana de l'Aviation 371 (year 2000).
The one below is one of the most "reasonable" designs they come by. Imagine the others. :
Here is an article from LA FANA magazine issue 371,about the Lanier company,I know
it had eight experimental aircraft designs,but it is the first time to know PL-9 and PL-10.
