NEWS: Wingtra gets curves

I notice that the very attractive looking Wingtra VTOL has undergone a slight design change. The often used aviation sore, if it looks right it will fly right I should imagine applies. A touch of the clipped wing Spitfire in the new shape.

Not seeing much of it in the open market, though. It deserves to be doing better.
