Named the Shark. Quite the project if one is so inclined. Very unusually shaped gyro. If it's true that it was flown around the Tucson area back in the 70's, I sure would like to see some video of it doing so. It looks like an engine mount on the back of the mast.

Eddie: No! I thought RAF's had the record for highest gyroplane thrustlines in the entire world!

That's what I thought Kevin until I seen the gyro-copptter,perhaps the RAF has the record

for ones that actually fly.
