    World's smallest aircraft

    Does anyone know what the smallest flying aircraft is? If so, what is it, where is it, and any other info about it.

    Cheers

    The Stitts Skybaby biplane has a wingspan of just about 6ft - last time I heard it was in the EAA Museum at Oshkosh. It definately flew, but I don't know how often or how successfully.

    the Stitts skybaby flew for about 10 years I think and quite successfully. Would think baggage space would be a bit limited for it to be used as a tourer
    The mind once expanded by a new idea never returns to its original size.

    There were a few small flying contraptions at Fairford this year.

    G-REBA i guess being the smallest. Cant remember make/type etc. Will find a pic later.

    There probably is smaller out there though.

    The Cri-Cri is the worlds smallest twin engined aircraft. They seemed to have mostly disseapeared now?
    The Ward Gnome G-AXEI was the UK smallest aircraft, saw it in a museum about 10 years ago.
