Tiny twin-engine plane


This has to be one of the smallest planes ever. Seems like you would feel every little variation of the wind, and I can't imagine what would happen if you hit a decent-size bird. Check out some of the other pictures at their site.

That's two small jet engines on there isn't it? Pretty amazing.

Eep. Not a plane for those afraid of heights. Or tall people. Or fat people. Or people who lean to one side. Or...

Good lord... where do they put the fuel?

They started out as piston airplanes.

5 gallons of gas and the useful load is 202lbs or so. Which means that if you weigh more than 170lbs, fully clothed, you can't carry a fuel load of gas.

I don't have to worry about flying in that thing. I wouldn't fit because I'm way to tall!

Those engines were designed for MODEL plans. Not the real thing.

For bigger people you could buy the bigger engines.
