    I guess the Germans can make some ugly aircraft as well. This little beast was a one of a kind pilot in the prone position trainer(according to Google Translate)...

    Wonder if they were trying to create an inexpensive trainer late in the war with this design?

    Actually it was not a trainer but an experimental test aircraft. It was built to test the effects of a pilot in the prone position. Only one was built and used for testing in 1943.

    There is a book I have called something like "Kurt Tanks photo album" and in it there are pictures of this airplane after it came to grief overrunning the airport boundary.

    Here's the British one, appreciably smarter looking. The Mosquito in the background is B.35 RS712, now Kermit Weeks' at Oshkosh.
