Unknown - Late 1970's
Photo scanned from a slide, obtained from the archives of Groningen Airport Eelde. It flew for the first time in 1977, so I'm guessing this photo was taken in the late 70's. Was quite surprised when I found it, since I never knew such a design ever existed. I have to say though, getting hold of some of the photos I found in the archives made my whole day!

What an amazing aircraft. It appears to include elements of a WIG, but able to lift well out of ground effect. Any additional technical details you can share? Thanks for posting - wonderful!
