Aero-News Quote of the Day
"[I]t was never an aircraft... It never flew. It
was essentially an incomplete concept model, the shell of an idea.
It was never structurally completed. It was never mechanically
completed. It was never electrically harnessed. There was only one
rotor head produced, the second was not. There were only blades
made for the one head. There were no drive train components. The
upper structures both fore and aft were never manufactured. The
interior was never completed. In no way, shape, or form did it
qualify as an aircraft, historic or otherwise."
