Ball Bartoe Jetwing – Amazing

This aircraft was developed in the early 70’s to test "blown wing" technology, where the aircraft is powered by a jet engine, but a portion of the exhaust is redirected through the wings and out over the ailerons. A small secondary "augmenter" wing and aileron fences direct air over the ailerons also, enabling this big plane to be controllable at 35 kts!

This is on display at Wings Of The Rockies museum in Denver, along with other cool planes, might be worth a road trip!
