Custer CCW-5 Channel Wing - Untitled
This photo is copyright protected and may not be used in any way without proper permission.
The Custer CCW-5 was designed to give STOL performance by the pusher engines pulling air through the wing 'channels'. This worked OK, but the extra drag caused by the aircraft's layout cancelled out the benefits. It was intensively tested between 1953 and the 1970s, but no production orders were secured. Now preserved by the MAAM at Reading, PA.
