Jo's home-made modelvliegtuigen met straalmotoren. Topsnelheid 360Kmh. .
The Shadows and all the planes on this site are all own design. Even the wing coordinates are own design. This Shadow I is stopped at 228 Mph.
This plane has two jet-engines of 3.5 kg thrust each. The lift-off weight with one liter fuel is 5.5 kg..
Shadow II and Shadow I. You see that the Shadow II bigger is as the Shadow I. The Shadow II is special designed to give demo -flights on airshows. This plane has a lower wing load and therefore better to fly and land on small airfields. The Shadow I is designed for high speed flights.
Nice to see why the twin-engine plane is named Big Jim.

If you look good you can see the pulsjet. Yes the Shadows are always with us !
Still lower. Here you see already the shadow on the runway. Now you know why this plane is named SHADOW !!
So still a little bit lower. Not forgotten this is full throttle about 228 Mph. This is only possible when the plane, engine and pilot are trimmed /tuned together!!
The Dehavillant Swallow. The Swallow was the answer on the German Messeschmidt 163. The Swallow had a jet engine and the ME 163 a rocket engine running only a few seconds.
Here you see well that the Shadow is NOT a small one. Nearly 10pnd. launching weight !!! Who does it better.
Look at the back of the van.

Here we just arrive by our hotel, the Circus Circus hotel. The Shadows in front. These Shadows and the Concorde were once extreme fast. More as 600Mph. O yes because they flew with a DC 10 to Los Angels. In the first we planned to fly with the Concorde to Los Angels. But the special boxes we made for a save trip of the planes to U.S. were to big for the cargo space in the Concorde. What a pity. !!
Concorde with Rom Air retracts. The Concorde was special build for Las Vegas! O yes, all the green here are green carpets
Here you see the pulsjet engines good. On the back you see the fuselage of the real Concorde. This picture is made on Heathrow GB airfield. There were made some publicity pictures of the real with the "small" Concorde.
