Tiny Delta Jet?

Thu Feb 05, 2004 9:08 pm

Once, I saw a flyer with aircraft for sale. One was a little private jet but the surprising thing was, it was shaped like a delta-winged fighter jet, only little. What companies make delta-winged private jets?

Im pretty sure that there are no biz jets with delta wings, as delta wings are only used on supersonic aircraft.

99.9% sure.

I don't think it's a bizjet. More of a sportplane or just to get any 1 or 2 persons from point A to B.

Sukhoi and an American businessjet manufacturer (I think it was Beech) planned to build a supersonic businessjet a few years ago and might still be working on it.
It was supposed to have a delta wing configuration.
I wish I were flying

That is not a delta wing, it's just a regular wing with a pretty decent sweepback and some big honkin' engines underneath (reminds me of a B-58).

I would say you might have seen a Delta Dyke, but those are piston singles, not jets. I have no idea. I thought about the ViperJet, but it has fairly conventional wings.
