The Camair Twin Navion was not a particularly successfull attempt to improve upon the well-liked, but slightly under-powered, Ryan navion. In the end only 33 examples were produced with this one on display at the super mid-Atlantic Air Museum.

The sole surviving example of a Spratt Controlwing unconventional light aircraft. A small series was built in the 1960/70s, some having a seaplane hull. All had a pusher engine at the rear and the wings could be moved in flight to provide control. Side-by-side seating for pilot and passenger.

Isn't this *almost* like one of those old shots from the 50s & 60s? A classic prop on the ramp, baggage carts and service vehicles in attendance, passenger stairs and a small terminal building in the background. OK, so my geeky aeroplane imagination has run a bit wild but, nevertheless, this was a fantastic day out at this museum.

After testing this CCW-5, now on display as part of the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum, the conclusion was reached that the advantage in lift and field length performance achieved by the channel wing did not offset the layout's many deficiencies resulting from the increased drag profile and weight penalties.
