Horten Ho-I

The story of the 'flying wings' designed by the brothers Reimar and Walter Horten began with a series of models, followed by the Horten Ho I sailplane of 1934, in which the pilot occupied a prone position in the wing centre section. As with all Horten aircraft, the Ho I had no vertical flying surfaces, elevons being used for pitch and roll control, and yaw control being effected by brake flaps above and below the leading edges near the wingtips. Although quite a successful design, the Ho I did not satisfy the Hortens, who destroyed it and replaced it with the Ho II.
