    Hi Guys,

    A rather special and unique survivor has been added to my walkaround site; the Caproni Ca.22 parasol monoplane.

    Only the one of this research aircraft was built to investigate a variable incidence wing, which makes it very special. Take a closer look here:

    I like the fact that they kept it original.

    How Peter Jackson (yes, the movie director) talked the Caproni Museum into parting with this is beyond me. It was in storage at the museum for many years and I can only assume that Caproni needed the money more than they needed the aeroplane. That is, unless its on permanent loan, which means I take the cash offer reference back.
