In the First Russian Soaring Flight Competition at Feodosia (Crimea) in 1923, a very light “all‐wing” sailplane took part. The parabola plan shape of its wing, its small span and low aspect ratio raised general interest. The designer and pilot of this Flying Wing was the Russian student of aeronautical engineering, B. J. Tscheranowsky.
