Waco's answer to the post-war dream was,
well.......whacko, to be precise. This revolutionary
pusher design was
developed in 1946. Powered by a centrally mounted 215 hp Franklin
driving a complex set
of shafts and gears to the high mounted prop, it failed to provide
interest to compete with
the more conventional Bonanza, Navion or Cessna 195 of the day.
This resulted in the demise
of yet another great American aircraft manufacturer. Photo acquired
