From Wikipedia: "A flying wing is a tailless fixed-wing aircraft that has no definite fuselage, with most of the crew, payload, and equipment being housed inside the main wing structure. A flying wing may have various small protuberances such as pods, nacelles, blisters, booms, vertical stabilizers (tail fins), or undercarriage. Some aircraft have no fuselage but do have a separate horizontal stabilizer surface mounted on one or more booms; these are also commonly referred to as flying wings, although this is not strictly correct. An example of such a design is the Northrop X-216H." Condition: Good. Inscribed bo Chet and signed by Carl Hatrak, Chief Contest Director.
