a british ww2 prototype tandem wing aircraft
About this creation
The pressures of World War II inspired all the participating countries to examine new, often radical aircraft concepts. In England, Miles Aircraft produced this prototype "tandem wing" airplane to see if placing a full-sized wing on either side of a plane's center would reduce drag. It was believed that such an arrangement would be perfect for carrier-based planes due to the configuration's shorter wings, diminished fuselage length and STOL capabilities.
The M.35 "Libellula" (A word derived from a member of the dragonfly family) took to the air in early 1942, but exhibited serious stability problems. Subsequent wind tunnel tests suggested that these problems could be corrected, leading to the building of the M.39B twin-engine bomber prototype a year later
