Re: Canards

Everyone should have a few of these:





Yes I am Swedish. :-) Aren't they beautiful? And they work! And they can be bought already! Twenty of these and you have money left for a hangar, personnel, spare parts, and gold watches for the whole pluton, instead of one lousy F-35 with questionnable performance. Just kidding. The F-35 isn't even ready yet. ;-)

And his brother

Air Force Museum - Monino, Russia
Already with an interesting fixed canard design, so that detail was already known some years before the 144.
The view from behind with the 4 grouped engine exhausts looks line a Star Wars battleship to me... Especially if you see it live on a grey and frosty day in Monino.
