Amazing machine the " homer" shame only two built, but when the soviet air force says niet you know you have problems!

Any one know if the eu / uk heavy lift competition still going on, i seem to remember a supersize euro tandem twin design being flashed about..... This and the king would be an interesting sight
Not sure what "last time didn't end well" is based on; Frank Tefft - "THE" legend of 53's did the maneuver and it went just great ! All he had to do is compensate with a little "dishout" as he described it to compensate for the loss of lift while inverted to keep altitude. Bravo - hope he is still enjoying his retirement now in Madison Connecticut I believe !
