What? The nose gear rotates 90 degrees when it retracts? That's the first I'd seen of that. All the drawings of the thing show it retracting directly back into the fuselage with no rotation of the wheel.

Hi, with regard to my illustration: Its an oversight on my part. On the front head-on view I omitted to include the 'vane'. My fault.

Hi Vladimir.
Not really. I found the same references everyone else seems to have found.
I'm sure Justo has some info though.

Best regards.

Sorry for the exceedingly late response. My original iMac died around the time of the question and it is only now I'm suitably kitted out again.

As for the question: I'm not sure but as it was on the reference I used I kept it. I'll chase up my refs. It was a long time ago but will try and find them/it.

Reference used was from:
Jet Planes of the Third Reich. The Secret Projects.
By Manfred Griehl.
Page 179.
The illustration clearly shows a splitter like item on the side view, but not on the front. I now think it might be 'two' fence vanes, one on each side of the intake forming a scoop as a means of focusing air into the engine.

Beautiful Machine!!

BUT - arguably - NOT a Flying Wing anymore, at least not a "Horten typical - PURE Wing".
I'd rather call it a BWB (Blended-Wing-Body) - at least visually - not unlike the "Atlantica"from Wingco - http://www.wingco.com/


Cheers,
