Northrop N-1M Jeep

The N-1M was Jack Northrop's first pure flying wing. It was originally built with drooping wingtips, but they were later straightened. And that's how the National Air and Space Museum restored it. I saw it while it was parked in a hanger at the Garber Restoration Facility.

The second set of photos is of the aircraft on the floor of the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center of the National And and Space Museum.
