The Flying Wing of Baragwanath

ZS-UEC: The Flying Wing of Baragwanath

This is not a story with a happy ending…

Elsewhere I posted a photograph of a flying wing design, ZS-UEC. Regrettably, I do not have any good quality photos of this aircraft. We always treated it as a bit of a joke.

I cannot tell you much about the aircraft or of its owner other than he was a Hollander. In fact, I no longer remember his name!

We seldom saw him at the airfield but when he did show-up he was always assured of a lot of curious spectators. For the purpose of this story I am going to give him the name of Jan which rings a bell for me.

I believe the ‘Flying Wing’ was a Japanese design. It was not kept at Baragee and the reason for this will become clear as the story unfolds…
