Horten Ho229 Spirit of Thuringia

Horten Ho229 Spirit of Thuringia

Reaching speeds approaching 800 kph in prototype form, the Horten Ho 229 'Nurflügel' -'all wing' was one of the most enigmatic aircraft projects to emerge from World War Two and is redolent of today's 'stealth' concept. In terms of design, it is seen as a precursor to it.
The authors of this book have spent many years researching the Horten brothers and their remarkable designs. Unlike previous works on the aircraft, they examine the Ho 229 with emphasis on its build and structure, an area which has often been inaccurately and insufficiently portrayed.
With hundreds of fascinating photographs, plus the most extensive set of accurate scale drawings ever produced and colour artwork, this book represents the most thorough technical study of the Ho 229 ever published.
