According to “meetmrglock”, Cri-cri, the aircraft featured in this video, is touted as the “world’s smallest twin-engine plane “. Unfortunately, there are only “approximately 30 Cri-cri aircraft in airworthy condition in the U.S. and 100 around the world.” Video after the jump.
As with any homebuilt aircraft, the existing Cri-cri planes have often been modified by their builders, departing from the original design to a varying degree, resulting in different performance. One flying Cri-cri, F-PZPR, was even equipped by its pilot Nicolas Charmont with jet engines, increasing the cruising speed from 115 mph for the regular propeller-driven version to around 150 mph. At only 16′ wingspan and 12’10” length, it is obviously a single-seater, making an impression of a dwarf velomobile with wings at close range
