This supersonic delta fighter interceptor was designed with the assistance of Dr. Reimar Horten. First, a glider was designed was a proof of concept and flew in 1954. Then, a second prototype was built to check the general concept and design details. Later on, a third prototype is built for the achieving supersonic flight.

Focke Borgward BFK 1 Kolibri, Germany, 1958 , Experimental Helicopter 


The automobile manufaturer Borgward in Bremen tried to expand its program by helicopters. So the Kolibri was designed together with Prof. Heinrich Focke. The project was shut down because of economical problems of the Borgward factories.


Bölkow BO FJ Flying Jeep, Germany, 1960 , Experimental Helicopter 


Experimental device for the development of a flying platform. Designed by Dr. Heidelberg. Lift and pro pulsion were supplied by several propellers. The props were driven by compressed air supplied by a compressor on the ground.

British Aircraft Corp. TSR 2, United Kingdom, 1964 , Tactical bomber and reconnaisance aircraft 


Originally designed to follow the Canberra, the TSR 2s development was delayed by problems with its complex avionics very much. After the maiden flight in 1964, the TSR 2 project was shut down.


Bölkow BO 46, Germany, 1964 , Experimental high speed helicopter 


The Bo46 was designed around the Derschmidt rotor sys- tem to perform highspeed trials. The rotorblades are moved individually to suppress negative backflow effects during highspeed flight. Technical problems couldn't be solved so the project was shut down.
