The Horten HO IX (or HO 229) will be familiar to fans of some of Germany's wackier bits of engineering towards the end of the war. Designed as a single flying wing, the Horten aircraft was set to revolutionise the German war effort. Perhaps for the better the plane didn't make it to production, though a number of prototypes were made. This is the first time I've seen a component from one of those prototypes heading for sale, since they're so scarce. Is the starting bid of $230,000 too much? Perhaps, but you can't deny the aircraft's intrigue and importance.
