Time to get out of hibernation.

Not too difficult, is it?

What a strange coincidence to see this, I just got a new book - waffen-arsenal-special-18-nurflgel-flugzeuge
and that aircraft is shown on page 24  ;D

It is the DFS 40 (originally developed as the Delta V)



The DFS 40 (originally developed as the Delta V) was a tail-less research aircraft designed by Alexander Lippisch in 1937 as a
follow-on to his Delta IV aircraft. In construction, the DFS was closer to a flying wing than its predecessor, and was built as an
alternative to that aircraft.

The DFS 40 was flown for the first time by Heini Dittmar in 1939, shortly before Lippisch departed the DFS (Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug
- German Research Institute for Sailplane Flight) to begin work at Messerschmitt. Soon afterwards, without Lippisch there to supervise the project,
the aircraft was crashed due to an error in center of gravity calculations that resulted in it entering a flat spin during flight.

Specifications (DFS 40) - General characteristics

Crew: 1
Length: 5.1 m (16 ft 9 in)
Wingspan: 12 m (39 ft 4 in)
Powerplant: 1 × Argus As 8 4-cyl in-line piston engine, 75 kW (100 hp)

I would probably look equally stupid if I won anything - which I never do.
Then again, I never gamble.

About the same timescale, unfortunately a rather miserable photo
