The Gotha Go-229 was the first turbojet powered aircraft of a pure flying wing design. Although flown for the first time in 1945, the aircraft looked very modern and way ahead of it's time. The Go-229 was initially designed by the brothers Reimar and Walter Horten, pioneers in early flying wing aircraft designs. Provision was made for four 30 mm MK 103 or MK 108 cannon mounted immediately outboard of the engines. Hardpoints were to be provided beneath the center section for two 2205-lb bombs or for two 275 Imperial gallon fuel tanks. Flight tests went quite well. Handling characteristics were much better than expected. A maximum level speed of 497mph was reached during the test flights. What an owesome flying machine. I wanted to post a picture of the Go-229 with this text but I don't know how.
