The Weserflug P.1003, was a two-man German aircraft designed in 1938 by Weserflug. The aim of the project was to construct a military tilt rotor aircraft with VTOL characteristics for use in World War II. For takeoff, the entire outer part of the wing could be rotated 90 degrees so that the propellers is directed straight up so that they would create a lifting force that would left the aircraft off the ground in a manner similar to that of a helicopter. Once in the air propeller would be rotated to a horizontal position and propel the aircraft forward.

  • O Weserflug P.1003 foi um projecto da Weser Flugzeugbau para uma aeronave VTOL. Este projecto iniciou em 1938, e apresentava uma aeronave com uma fuselagem convencional mas com umas asas cuja metade exterior poderia rodar para cima e para a frente, fazendo com que os dois enormes rotores que compunham os motores permitissem à aeronave descolar verticalmente e voar em frente como um avião convencional. Devido à complexidade do sistema para a época em que se pretendia construir a aeronave, o projecto nunca saiu do papel 50 anos mais tarde, os Estados Unidos da América embarcaram num projecto semelhante, a partir do qual foi concebido o Boeing V-22 Osprey.

  • The Weserflug P.1003, was a two-man German aircraft designed in 1938 by Weserflug. The aim of the project was to construct a military tilt rotor aircraft with VTOL characteristics for use in World War II. At the beginning of 1938 plans for a tilt rotor aircraft were drawn up, and the project, named P.1003, was supported by the Air Ministry. The aircraft was a monoplane featuring a fairly conventional fuselage. The aircraft was built with high mounted wings that could be hinged halfway along, and with a propeller at each wing tip. A single Daimler-Benz DB 600 engine was mounted in the middle of the fuselage, and drive shafts connected the engine to the propellers, which were abnormally large with a diameter of 4 metres, when for a similar aircraft the propellers would have had a diameter of 2 metres. The initial plans included the aircraft being fitted with retractable landing gear wheels. For takeoff, the entire outer part of the wing could be rotated 90 degrees so that the propellers is directed straight up so that they would create a lifting force that would left the aircraft off the ground in a manner similar to that of a helicopter. Once in the air propeller would be rotated to a horizontal position and propel the aircraft forward. However, the aircraft was never constructed due the complexity of the VTOL system, although a very similar design was later built by the United States named the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey, which began testing in 1989.
