I will never doubt the courage of the pilot that flew that plane.

Sadly he died in this aircraft when it crashed on August 15, 1979 near Puget Sound.

You'll find this aircraft in Aerofiles in the "Ha-Hu" section. The name is the same as a well known fastener seen on clothing.

he died in this aircraft when it crashed
...from an unrecoverable spin.
Which leads us to the question: Why?
Why on earth does mankind always have to repeat the same mistakes?
The whole layout of this plane screams that it isn't stall- or spin-safe.
Both at certain side slip angles and at certain AoA you have to lose control.

Something completely new to me. I thought forward-swept wings died with Sukhoi.
And I've never heard of the SAT Bureau before....

Thanks Locopiston.  :)
But I think it's time for someone else to have a go.
