    The link below provides a full report and pictures of one of the fastest aircraft of its class, but never went into production. We are talking about the Heinkel He 119. If it had been produced and participated in WW2 its performance would have changed in some way the course of the war? What do you think? Click on the link below and take your own conclusions.

    Being a Propeller-Aircraft, it wouldn't have had any significant impact on Germany's fortunes in the war, as the future was in Jet-propulsion...Certainly an interesting and unusual design!

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Reminds me a little of the legendary Bugatti 100P that was designed back in 1937 but had to be hidden in a barn when the Germans invaded France in 1940, it never flew....

    ..Until a few days ago that is!

    Unfortunately a braking problem caused it to swing and nose over, although it's thought damage is minimal.

    Here's a couple of links that are worth a look at, and a video of the tentative first test flight, 76 years after it was first intended.
