It’s been another eventful week. The President induced some more Cloward-Piven for the economy by axing the Keystone XL Pipeline guaranteeing us increased energy costs, per his stated desire. ABC rolled out Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife to blast him. Then, Gingrich turns that around into an attack on the media, which appears to have been quite successful. Then, there was the win by Gingrich last night in the SC primary. This blows a huge hole in the Romney inevitability that the MSM was pushing. And, as usual, the blogs on the blogroll covered it all, and then some. So, here is a selection of links. Kindly give them a click.
As for the theme, I went with some strange, or at least little-known planes-because they are cool!

It looks strange, and it was. It did show potential, and had a top speed of approximately 450-460 MPH. However, the propeller age was over, and the project was canceled in 1947.

Not So Well Known Plane: North American XB 70 Bomber
Cool thing about this plane? When it was tested at full speed, it blew it’s own paint off! Not too many things can make that claim. After one of the prototypes crashed, and the military decided to concentrate on ICBMs instead of new supersonic heavy bombers, the project was cancelled in 1969. It is rumored that the Soviets spent a lot of time and trouble developing the Mig 25 to counter it.

Not so Well Known Plane: XB-35/XB-49 Flying Wing
Jack Northrop designed the post WW II Flying Wing design. The XB 35 was a propeller driven craft, in a pusher setup. Then, the Air Force wanted jet propulsion, so the XB 35s were all converted to jet propulsion, and re-designated the XB 49. However, it was a bit to advanced for it’s time, had some technical problems, instability issues, and the destruction of two prototypes, ended the program. However, the basic idea was sound, and when the technology finally caught up with the design concept, we got this, also from Northrop.

Not so Well Know Plane: Horten Flying Wing
Jack Northrop was not the only one thinking of flying wings. The Horten brothers were as well. Their design, the HO 229, was a jet powered flying wing that not only out performed the other operational German jet fighter of the time, the ME 262, but would have had decreased visibility to the primitive radar used at that time, making it the very first stealth aircraft. It had been ordered, but production was barely getting underway when the war ended. One HO 229 remains in existence, at a Smithsonian restoration facility. It is unknown as to whether or not it will be refurbished or displayed.

Not so Well Known Plane: Heinkel HE 162 “Salamander”
With the war going badly for the Third Reich, and Allied planes flying with impunity over their territory, the Germans put out proposals for a Volksjäger, or “people’s fighter.” This is the plane that won it. The plane was built using as much wood for it’s construction as possible, and Hitler Youth were envisioned as pilots for the craft. There were several hundred in various stages of completion when the war ended. Thankfully for us, Hitler’s insanity brought on the end of the war. A lack of fuel and pilots also prevented the “Salamander” from entering operational service.

Strange Plane: Bachem Ba 349
Basically, this was yet another desperate plan by the Nazis to save the Reich from Allied Bombers. A “pilot” would climb into this thing, and be shot vertically into the air via a rocket engine. The plane would be guided to incoming bombers, whereupon the pilot would fire either 19 or 28 unguided rockets at the bombers, and bail out once clear. This only flew once, killed it’s pilot, and was killed off itself.

Not so Well Known Strange Plane: North American F 82 Twin Mustang
Designed as a long-range escort fighter for the Pacific theater in WW II, the F-82 is basically two P-51 Mustangs joined at the wings. It was eventually used in Korea, where it did earn a few combat victories. As so many other planes developed late in WW II, it was quickly outmoded by jet fighters.
