In 1943 the all-wing and jet-propelled Horten Ho 229 (‘aitch-oh-two-two-nine’) promised spectacular performance and the German air force (Luftwaffe) chief, Hermann Göring, allocated half-a-million Reich Marks to the brothers Reimar and Walter Horten to build and fly several prototypes. Numerous technical problems beset this unique design and the only powered example crashed after several test flights but the airplane remains one of the most unusual combat aircraft tested during World War II.
Also there are images of the building a static version of a 82″ span model for use as a reference for the Northrop Grumman team while they were building the full size model and the Horten Ho 229 cockpit mockup
