Weird you dont actually see it flying in any of the photos, yet it must of flown, looks familiar.
What interests me from that site is that old crash site (http://englishrussia.com/?p=2053) Anyone know what that is from that pile of junk? Radial engine for sure..but what is it really.

Reminds me of the Channelwing (http://www.custerchannelwing.com/index.html) design.

I hadn't seen that before. A very interesting concept. I had to think about it for a bit before I decided it wasn't total nonsense, but it doesn't seem to have been develeoped on. Perhaps there are snags...

The annular wing is quite an old concept, just type it in google and you might be surprised.

I like the Moebius band wing shape, hehe.

You can find a youtube video on Custers channel wing showing it in flight.

interesting design. It is like a biplane with
upper and lower wings interconnected....
