Great stuff.  Kinda looks like creativity inspired by desperation.

 

Thanks no_habla for habla'ing ingles.


I use Nach instead of Nacht on purpose. And I pronounce it with the English "ch", like catch.

The Natter is indeed an interesting little plane. I read about it in a book called Chasing the Demon, about breaking the sound barrier. Rumor has it a German test pilot might have been the first to break the sound barrier. Unfortunately, he didn't survive the flight. His controls locked up and he couldn't release the cockpit, so he lawn darted at quite a high speed and witnesses reported hearing a boom from the direction of the falling Natter.

Compressability was quite the challenge. As you approach the speed of sound, the air going over the top of the wing hits the speed of sound as it travels faster than the air on the bottom. A lot of small sonic booms occur, locking up the controls. And sometimes the small booms caused structural damage breaking the plane apart. 

 

The general fix was to lose altitude, and if the plane didn't break up you would be fine. Lower altitude raised the speed of sound, and once the sonic booms over the wings went away so did the vortexes, and you got control back. 

 

This was a problem for a number of planes, the P38 Lighting, FW 190, and P 47 Thunderbolt. They solved it on the P 38 with a little dive break flap, which didn't slow the plane but altered the air just enough.
