Yes, and one which came close to being reality. Late 1960's.

He swoops, he strikes....yes it is the Swearingen SA-28T, from 1969.



It would certainly have stood out from the crowd, considering what else was around in those days.

Sort of, but I would say yes.

It's designed as a normal taildragger, but it has a good L/D ratio and may be used for soaring.

Can't find an exact date because the marketing/design company may be out of business. It appears that several are still being built.

I'll try to dig out more information.
