The book is a fascinating insight to the whole forward wing concept for aircraft.
The book is full of photographs, technical details, data. I don't think there can be much more to be known about this aircraft beyond this book. An absolute treasure trove of information for aviation enthusiasts, Luft"46 nuts and researchers.
One word though: it appears this series of books appears to be somewhat expensive, some eye watering so!
If you want these books I'd get them soon as they will get more expensive rapidly.
The Junkers Ju-287 pioneered the use of forward-swept wings. The approach was not tried again until the Grumman X-29 aircraft, which first flew in 1984. The challenge presented by this wing form is the twisting moments exerted on forward-swept wings while the aircraft is in flight. The first two chapters of the book are devoted to the evolution of the forward-swept wing from 1835 through 1945. The remaining chapters are excellent descriptions of the life of these aircraft in the same vein as other books in the series.
The well written text along with numerous photographs and drawings make this a superb resource.

An outstanding and very complete history of one of Germany's aviation experiments. The inclusion of the Soviet results really completes the cycle. I highly recommend it.Published 13 months ago by Dummy
