The Hafner Rotachute . . Here’s the kind of aircraft you might expect a little kid to fashion out of Lego blocks during free play… As it turns out, this aircraft was real, and it really flew. This model of the Hafner Rotachute features all the essentials; it: has rotors (dark gray), fuselage (dark orange), landing skid plus wheels (light gray), pilot seat (dark green), control stick (yellow), tail (dark red), and stabilizers (brown); is minifig scale; mimics the profile and proportions of the real aircraft; but takes just 23 elements to assemble (not including the mini-fig shown) The Rotachute had no engine. In test runs in 1942, it flew as a gyrocopter under tow (from vehicles and aircraft) to altitudes of 200 to 300 feet, then would be released to auto-rotate to its delivery point. Though intended as a means to deliver troops to the battlefield, it was not deployed. Only 8 were built; a sole survivor is on display at a British military aviation museum. I especially invite your humorous comments such as “At only 23 Lego elements, this model sinks to a new low.” So to get you started here, complete this sentence: “After taking one look at the Rotachute he was ordered to fly, Corporal Minnyfigg said [insert your comment here].”
