    French flying wings

    About the same time the Horten brothers were experimenting with their flying wing design, and still years before Messerschmitt introduced the Me.163 Komet, a Frenchman named Charles Fauvel was also conducting experiments with his own flying wing designs. I recently came across this website a while ago and it is very intersting. Apparently, some of his designs are still flying.

    Hi Arsenal,

    Here is a shot of the Fauvel AV36 preserved at the Deutsches Museum, Flugwerft OberschleiƟheim ...
