While almost the rest of Europe was destroying each other, The Swiss where minding their own business at leisure. The Pilatus company created at those times the SB-2 Pelican -first flown in May 1944-; the first aircraft they ever built. This lanky five-seat light civil transports was designed by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology with STOL qualities in mind -a prequel use of that acronym. It was a not very attractive aircraft equiped with a marked positive swept wing (conveniently “flap-ped” and “slat-ted”) and a not often seen, then, tricycle landing gear. Only a prototype was built and it was soon lost only 4 years after its first flight.
I kinda love this kind of wings.
