Hi all,

you know Yvan Makhonine? This french inventor build the Mak.10 (1931) and the Mak.123 (1947) with variable wing geometry. Anybody knows other projects of this man? I need also a short history, but not in french...

There are two, or three projects, probably better called "concepts" which are said to be
made by Makhonine, I'm looking for more information for quite a long time. Both are probably
post-war stuff, nevertheless I'll show them here : VTOL designs with stowable, but not foldable
rotors. The picture, showing two designs (via vstol.org), should be regarded just as a schematic
drawing only, I think. The other one (source unknown) looks a little bit more realistic, but maybe
it's just a visualisation of the concept, too.
BTW, Yvan Makhonine was born in Russia .

Here's the MaK 123, although it, too, wasn't ready before the end of WW II:

Russian-born Frenchman Yvan Makhonine developed this unique prototype with telescopic wing panels in the post-war years.
This item from FLYING, February 1950 is pretty basic... I'm sure other forum members can add info and pics!

I've merged those topics in the Early Projects section, as maybe with the exception of those stowable-rotor projects,
they belong to the pre-WW II/WW II era.

Are you quite sure about the MAK 123?

Not absolutely, the only date confirmed by several sources, is the first flight in 1947,
so construction should have begun a lot earlier.
But we can split the MAK-123 and the stowable-rotor projects into a post-war Makhonine thread.
