The EAA 292, FMX-4 Project

In 1994 Barnaby Wainfan flew his unique lifting body FMX-4 to Air Venture and created an unfulfilled interest in the airplane.  Soon thereafter an engine-out damaged the airplane and it has sat in storage ever since.  In 2014 Barnaby decided to help EAA 292 recreate this airplane.  A project led by Bob Ingle has been steadily building this airplane so that after the first one flies, multiples can be be created.  Read about his progress to date by clicking on either image.
