Hitler’s Stealth Bomber

Replica Horten Ho 2-29 reconstructed from blueprints.

“The Horten Ho 229 was a late-World War II Nazi German prototype fighter/bomber. It was the first pure flying wingpowered by a jet engine and designed to be more difficult to detect with radar – the first aircraft to incorporate what is now known as stealth technology.”
