    I seemed to have been able to do the same...I lost my signature on my one of my post at the bottom. Maybe there is a mild bug here ?

      Indeed, I wouldn't know how he squares it with the FAA, but this differs from a BL in that:
      the horizontal tail is different,
      the vertical tail is different
      the wing is different
      the undercarriage is different.

      It is in the "experimental" category, which might go someway to explain the C of A designation.

      FWIW you're only one google query away.

      Yes it's quite annoying.
      I uploaded the picture and then breathed on it within photobucket before embedding the link. I can only assume they have multiple servers or some such and teh modification doesn't get around all of them at the same time.

        I know just about nothing concerning gliders (or sailplanes - or whatever you choose to call them), but it appears to me to be a Schleicher ASG29, but what would I know.

        If I am, in fact correct, then Open House.

          I find this very confusing. When I said ASW22 it was because it struck me immediately as being just that, including the wing and tail, especially the tail and the long wing of the BL. Even when the picture changed I still thought it was an ASW22. Now I see the suggestion of an ASG29, and so may it be. I was not familiar with the similarities.

            It's not an asg29


            To clarify or give another hint,

            N71FT would be known to most as Strega.
            The FAA have it as a P51-D, but it really isn't any more

            So as N71FT is to Strega
            N600DB is to ..................

              Good morning!

              It may be the ASW 22DB or "ETAbiter".

                            This is actually the LC-13A built by Bartlett, but I am not going to split hairs.

                              My 2 cents:

                              I like the WOT with whole aircraft since that way I learn about aircraft I never heard about. The best part is finding out the history or story behind the aircraft. Figuring out which part of the F-4 Phantom doesn't enlighten me about something new.

                              So I scanned in several unusual aircraft to get WOT back on track. Hopefully nothing that has been used before.

                                  NX23001 was the Rich-Twin Model 1-X-2. The craft was a 2 seat monoplane powered by 2 75hp Lycoming GO-145 engines. The manufacturer was the N.B.Rich Airplane Co. of Springfield Mass. Like many other designs of the 30's the Rich-Twin disappeared into obscurity.
