Not exactly what I expected!.

Bugatti 100P In 1937 Ettore Bugatti designed and built his innovative Bugatti Racer 100P aeroplane.
With a rigid , single seat, ply and balsa fuselage, wings swept forwards and butterfy tailfeathers
One Bugatti 4.9litre blown engine this was nothing short of revolutionary. Propulsion was to be by
two mid mounted 8 cylinder, 4.9 litre Turbocharged engines driving contrarotating props, with drive shafts through the cockpit. She never flew ( Herr Hitler saw to that) but the only prototype is on display today at Oshkosh.

A group of enthusiasts set about rebuilding a full scale 'prototype' from scant details and few plans available, you can find several web references.

A large RC model has now flown proving that Bugatti knew something about aerodynamics as well!
Following the successful flight of a large scale model, the Group have actually flown their full scale prototype , the subject of several YouTube Videos, lots of links on their web pages.
however the development  stopped following the fatal crash of this prototype.

Mark's pagesMark Jayne is not only a radio control enthusiast but an avid plane spotter and photographer who spends many a cold day on a hillside in Mid Wales awaiting the arrival of military aircraft flying The Mach Loop,
often at 450mph less than 100' from the ground.
Stunning photography.
