Hi Everyone!

I found this 3-view line drawing of an interesting small aircraft, and I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it.

As far as I know, this 3-view appeared in JAWA at some time, but I'm not sure when.

Thanks!!!



Chuck

That's just another modification of Richard T. Whitcomb invention, the winglets, that serve to reduce drag by moving the wing tip vortex outboard. Another example is Chinese An-2 - Shijianzhuang built Y5-B, and NASA studies of highly-modified C-5 with devices like these.

Seems also that Mrówka winglets are ajustable-angle stuff, but I can be wrong.

OK, I was stupid this time. These pods at this mod were for agricultural chemicals...
