I'm guessing those are half-generation air-to-air guided missiles under the wings.   Nice pic; the Ho-229 was definitely ahead of its time; I just wonder how the Horten brothers would have solved the same instability issues at speed that Jack Northrop had issues with on the YB-49 in the 1950s.

Have you seen the flying re-creation?

Not yet.   It would be interesting to see if the recreation has the same issue with instability that doomed the YB-49.

Just saw a documentary on this plane tonight on the National Geographic channel where the guys at the American skunkworks recreated one and then tested it for radar surveillance.  Definitely the worlds first stealth aircraft!

First rate illustration, just finished a book called "Last Talons of the Eagle" about these planes and the other experimental designs that were churned out. Is the picture for a book you're working on or are you going to publish your pictures.

is it just me, or are the German flying wings the coolest looking planes out there?

Also, very nice picture man.

indeed.

 

When they're seen flying towards you, you'll probably do 2 things; 1: take a picture of it.  2: Run for your life.
