Description:

The Leduc 0.22 was the prototype of a Mach 2 fighter built in France in 1956. It was the first attempt at a practical application of the ramjet technology that had been developed in the 0.10 and 0.21 research aircraft over the previous years. Unlike all previous Leduc aircraft, it featured swept wings and a coaxial turbojet-ramjet powerplant to enable unassisted operation. (Sources Wikipedia)

    Hi Rataz

    Thank :) Indeed, this is what I like most with the aircrafts. The discoveries, inventions, crazy ideas etc .... All that is, today, we can fly quite calmly. It took time and a lot of visionaries a little crazy to pass it. We must not forget them.

    Regards Emmanuel
