10 Failed GA Aeroplanes
« on: March 02, 2019, 10:02:21 am »
On the face of it, this is just a round-up of ten general aviation aircraft that didn't survive in the marketplace for various reasons, some of them technical and some of them financial. However, what makes it special is the comments section. For whatever reason, a lot of veterans of these projects have found their way to this video and left comments giving insider insights and close technical detail. A fascinating read.

An excellent video.
They are all still flying, at least in the minds of Whiffers.  :thumbsup:
