Ball-Bartoe Jetwing

The Ball-Bartoe Jetwing is an example of the far-sighted technological concepts and grassroots aviation instincts of the 1970s. Described by designer O.E. “Pete” Bartoe as a “low-key, low-cost” research vehicle, the Jetwing utilized unique design concepts, along with conventional aircraft parts to explore new low-speed aeronautical designs, short take-off and landing performance and more. Bartoe also experimented with titanium instead of aluminum in places where gases could reach temperatures of up to 1,000° Fahrenheit.
