The Horten Ho VI, only one prototype of which was built, had a wing with the very high aspect ratio of 32.4 to 1, which proved to be structurally weak and too flexible for practical ground handling.

Keeping goutou's observation in mind, I'm trying to imagine the HO 6 being constructed in structural composites that would vastly improve the weaknesses of the design.
World-beater, anyone ?

Ok. What was the mission for this design?
Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
