Fabulous in every respect. How I wish I could have seen the cockpit. It looks a bit like a boat on the outside. I wonder it if had similar qualities on the inside?

Has anyone noticed the "RAT-like" device near the trailing edge of the wing at the wing root (on top of the wing root)? Maybe they were even further ahead of their time than we realized. If anyone knows what it's for, I'd sure like to know. Thanks! And Thank You, Mr. Sikkema, for posting this treasure of treasures!!
