WMMS 2014 - part three

This is a model of the Curtis-Wright X19 that I saw at the WMMS this Sunday. At first I thought it was a 'What-if' or fantasy plane, but after speaking to the modeller, I was told that it actually existed and flew. For full details go to this Wicki link. A tilt-wing experimental transporter!

Here are a couple more images.

And a black and white image of the original.

It just goes to show that in many cases fact can be stranger than fiction.
