Luftwaffe confidencial - Book

by Daniel Uhr and Claudio Lamas.

A few words from Daniel:

Well, Lutwaffe Confidencial is a book that I wrote with a friend (Claudio Lamas) and it is about German design development in the aeronautical area between 1939 and 1945.

The main idea of the book is not only to show the Germans projects developed between this period, but related them to the main changes in the aeronautical design and it's reflection up to now in the civil and military area among other area.

Some of the subjects written In the book: swept wing, swept back wings, growing wings, tailless, V tail (butterfly tail), T tail, parasite airplanes, vtol, flying wings,...

Doing it we show that there are not too many new things in the air.
- As the USA used to say few years ago with the B2 showing it the first flying jet wing to fly, in fact they were not - German did it 60 years ago through Horten's brothers with the 229.

In parallel we show that this technology development run, was not a German exclusivity. The British, Americans, Russians, French,... run in it as well and we show and point it in the book (e.g. Coleoptere)

It is also a none political book. It's only about research and development.

Ailes de Horten X, Quelques trucs d'atelier

Quelques trucs d'atelier

l'activateur à cyano fait durcir la cyano plus vite

les ailes sont faite d'une vacu, avec un jonc de carbone à l'interieur du bord d'attaque, et une corde à piano à l'exterieur;
bois lamellé collé sur les autres bords.

Le tout a pour objet surtout d'éviter les déforamtions.

Ces ailes sont faites de façon a etre à paroies fines, mais sans se déformer

Collé a l'araldite, la poudre rouge sert a teinter l'araldite pour la voir mieux.
