What type of flying wing is that?


Hi guys

I was in the Planes of Fame museum in Valle AZ two weeks ago, and I saw a cute flying wing standing outside of the hangar. Does anyone recognize what type of flying wing that is?

Thanks for your help

Stefan

Sorry, but the Northrop N-9M was a twin-engine pusher.

This one is the Schapel SA-882.

Here's another photo of it (after the tarp covering deteriorated):
