For those that like it on the rare side: Payen Pa.22

Quote:
04/30/2007. The prolific designer Nicolas Roland Payen, started this type as the Pa 22/1R, a tandem-wing aircraft powered by a ramjet. When the ramjet, being developed by H.F. Malot, failed in tests, Payen redesigned the aircraft around the 180 hp Regnier 6B-01 six-cylinder, inverted-inline, air-cooled engine and it was redesignated Pa.22/2 "Flechair" (Arrow).

While being tested in the wind tunnel at Chalais-Meudon (Paris) the Germans invaded France; under German control the wind tunnel tests were finished. Redesignated Pa 22 V5, repainted in German colors and coded BI+XB, the aircraft was first flown by Payen's pilot, Jacques Charpantier, at Villacoublay at October 18, 1941. The aircraft was transferred to Payen's works at Juvisy where it was destroyed in an Allied raid in 1944.

Great airplane for a replica project. Ranger 200 hp six cylinder engines are cheap and easy to get. (There are 37 of them in one hanger at my home field.) I would love to fly it and see how she feels in the air. Awsome lines from any view. She needs wheel pants though, I wonder if they ever fitted a set?

Nice reminders... Means 'Arrow' of course.

The Payen Pa 49 'Katy' still survives at the Musee de l'Air, Paris. (Photo by my friend Colin McWilliams - much better than my efforts.) It's tiny, btw.

I've a 1/72 resin kit I've been fiddling with - must finish it one day.

And this from Flight's archive:

Looks like that answers Eric's undercarriage question - the final version would've had a retractable gear.

I have a resin kit - well 'lump' for it. Don't think it's going to happen.

There is a replica of the Pa100. I do not know if it is a flyer however.

The original ramjet version would have been quite a beast.... :roll:

Those are only models pics......I just wonder how one takes off with a Ramjet :?: :?: :?:

Well someone did a lot of cleaning up with that resin.

Thanks for that stuff, Michel.
