.: RS Models >> Heinkel He 176

  In the 1937 year Heinkel decided to built an aircraft to be entirelypowered by a rocket motor for the purpose of high-speed research and the prestige of possibly exceeded the contemporary" world speed record. Thus, late in 1937, the design of the He 176 was begun by Hans Regner, the aircraft was of the minimum size possible. The fuselage, into which the main-wheels recracted contained two tanks for the hydrogen peroxide and methanol propellants and a Walter RI rocket motor.
Finally, on 30 June, 1939, the He 176 with Warsitz at the control, made its first full rocket flight which lasted 50 seconds, and ended in a smooth landing. The He 176 programme was abandoned once war started, and the only prototype was sent to the Berlin Air Museum where it was destroyed in a bombing raid during 1943.
