Horten Gliders (3226 words)
Reimar and Walter Horten intended to use prone sailplanes such as the NASM Horten II L as intermediate trainers.
They hoped to smoothly transition pilots to higher performance Horten aircraft equipped with semi-prone cockpits such as the H IV and H VI sailplanes, and the jet-propelled Horten X. The Horten IIIf and the H VI V2 are the only aircraft in NASM collections configured for prone pilotage.
The AAF repeatedly misidentified the aircraft as a Horten III in official photographs and documents.
Horten Ho 229 V3 (2714 words)
The Horten IX design became the Horten Ho 229 aircraft program after Göring granted the project official status in 1943 and the technical office of the Reichsluftfahrtministerium assigned to it the design number 229.
Horten was the technical officer for Jadgeschwader (fighter squadron) 26 stationed in France.
Horten mounted elevons (control surfaces that combined the actions of elevators and ailerons) to the trailing edge and spoilers at the wingtips for controlling pitch and roll, and he installed drag rudders next to the spoilers to help control the wing about the yaw axis.
