    Indeed I did.

    I should add that it is, I agree, lovely, it's just not an ASW22 BL.

    Well then someone had better tell the FAA as they have N600DB registered as a Schleicher ASW-22BL!

    I'm sure they do, but, as stated, this isn't an ASW-22 BL (although it might have been once)

    Incidentally, where do you get N600DB from?

    Question

    That's what appears on the rudder of the sailplane whose picture you've posted, L4x2!

    Not when the FAA have it registered until 31 December 2013 on a certificate of airworthiness that says it is a Schleicher ASW-22BL! If it's not that, one has to assume that Mr Dick Butler of Manchester, Tennessee has made some pretty fundamental changes to his sailplane, such as to justify its description as a different make and/or model, without troubling the FAA about this!

    p.s. this is getting wierd - the picture has changed, the registration has disappeared, the sailplane has changed direction and there's no indication that L4x2 has edited his or her original post!

    Cool

    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 ?

    ASW22 BL

    It has to be.

    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.

    Over to Chris.

    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.

    RAB over to you

    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.
