Two further test flights were made between 2 and 18 February Horten mounted elevons control surfaces that combined the actions of elevators and ailerons to the trailing edge and spoilers at the wingtips for controlling pitch and roll, and he installed drag rudders next to the spoilers to help control the wing about the yaw axis. Aircraft produced by Gothaer Waggonfabrik. The Nazis were already developing the jet turbine power plant in great secrecy, but Walter’s role as JG 26 technical officer gave him access to information about the work.

This system gave a smoother and more graceful control of yaw than would a single-spoiler system. Not much 2299 left of the legacy regarding the Ho beyond a scant few airframes and a handful of black and white and some color pictures. Reimar swept each half of the wing 32 degrees in an unbroken line from the nose to the start of each wingtip where he turned the leading edge to meet the wing trailing edge in a graceful and gradually tightening hortdn.

The Ho A-0 was the official intended designation of a fast-production form of the Ho flying wing. Control was achieved with elevons and spoilers. The German War Machine Comes Calling Hermann Goring, the stout World War 1 ace 22 killsBlue Max recipient and now Reichsmarshall of the German Luftwaffe, laid out his “3 x Projekt” requirement envisioning a fast, long-range bomber with a lethal payload capacity.


InReimar wrote in Nurflugel: IX V2 outperformed the Me The Ho was further helped by the small forward and shallow side profiles made up only by the cockpit and engine bulges, the rest being nothing more than wing surface area.

Horten brothers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Power was handled by 4 x IA 16 El Gaucho radial piston engines as pushers. They apparently did not believe that Reimar shaped the Ho solely for aerodynamic reasons, that the jet was simply one in a long line of all-wing Horten aircraft, and that there exists no physical or documentary evidence to support Horten’s claims. Die Geschichte der Horten-Flugzeuge The V6 was a proposed single-seat fighter fitting alternate cannon armament but never proceeded past the mock-up stage.

The Ho III was also produced in four working prototypes with one fitting an engine. You are here Home Horten Ho V3.

BBC – Future – The WW2 flying wing decades ahead of its time

In a flying wing design, the fuselage was generally integrated into the wing roots for a very streamlined approach adding to effective aerodynamic principles. The Horten All-wing jet Fighter. The dual-spoiler configuration allowed for an improved control action hogten replace the action brought about by a more conventional rudder arrangement or single wing-mounted spoiler. The Nazis were already developing the jet turbine power plant in great secrecy, but Walter’s role as JG 26 technical officer gave him access to information about the work.

The resulting plane becomes difficult to spot on radar, partly because it has no tail fins that will bounce back radar waves.

Very quickly they decided to abandon that effort. The Ho VIII proved the most ambitious Horten flying wing attempt to date – a six engine, passenger commercial endeavor. He began in to consider fitting the Dietrich-Argus pulse jet motor to the H V but this engine had drawbacks and in the first month ofWalter gave his brother dimensioned drawings and graphs that charted the performance curves of the new Junkers jet turbine engine this engine is also fitted to the following NASM aircraft: They tested over a frequency range of 12 to THz,with wavelengths of the order of 10 microns.


Now under the Gotha label, the Ho advanced into a V3 prototype featuring 2 x Junkers Jumo C turbojet engines of 2, thrust in a revised engine intake. Though completed inmechanical issues with the engines forced the year-long delay.

The first is a horen paint that was added by the U. The prototype aircraft was completely destroyed. Retrieved 29 July German naming designations differed somewhat from conventional American systems used throughout the war.

There was no fuselage, no vertical or horizontal tail, and with landing gear stowed the main landing gear was fixed but the nose wheel retracted on the first prototype Ho V1the upper and lower surface of the wing stretched smooth from wingtip to wingtip, unbroken by any control surface or other protuberance.

However, the end of the war would bring hortten an end to the V3 prototype and cancel any production dreams. At the time, the Institution had a lot of airplanes but little display space. It was the first flying wing to be powered by jet engines.
