Skyjacker to Be on Display

Mojave's Sawyer Skyjacker will be on display for the event.

The Skyjacker was built by Ralph Sawyer, and was marketed in its day as the only flying "true lifting body." Sawyer's design calculations determined the aircraft would be able to carry 4.5 times the load as a typical aircraft with the same span. The airplane was named the Skyjacker because "it jacks itself into the sky."

See you there,

-Elliot Seguin
