Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Prue 160 was an American mid-wing, V-tailed, single-seat glider that was designed and built by Irving Prue in 1945. The 160 was constructed by Prue at the end of the Second World War, at a time when small, maneuverable gliders were in fashion. As a result the 160 had a wingspan of just 40 ft (12.2 m). The 160 was an all-metal design, with the wing skins, spar webs and ribs made from magnesium. The forward fuselage was built from a Lockheed P-38 Lightning drop tank. The wing employed a symmetrical NACA 0018 airfoil at the wing root, that transitioned to a NACA 0009 section at the wing tip. The aircraft had flaps that were mounted external to the wing and airfoil-shaped. The aircraft's empty weight was very light at 160 lb (73 kg).show more
