Nice pics Matej, I hadn't seen those before. Did you find them on the internet, or somewhere else ?

Quick collage that I made for my upcoming article.

Have you published that article yet?

They are displayed in the Luftwaffenmuseum in Berlin.

Yes, it was published one year ago in ATM magazine. Since then I found those two photos and a bit of additional information, so the latest version of story is always on my website.

Another trace of the Lampyridae project at DLR, found this time on the private homepage of a researcher at the Göttingen site (I first became aware of the picture elsewhere though):

Pressure sensitive paint visualisation of the pressure distribution - appears to be the now-familiar double delta configuration model again, going by the cropped wing tips. It is possible that the original source of the image is this publication, Engler being one of the authors:

I've collected some Lampyridae info on my website.

A few years ago, at a model show where I displayed my Lampyridae model (build thread), I met someone who'd worked at the NLR at the time they tested the Lampyridae. He told me that on one test, the model came crashing through the side wall of the tunnel.
