Skandinaviska Aero BHT-1 ’Beauty’ SE-ANX

Photographed in the Aeroseum, Gothenburg, on 19 December 2013 (where I am a guide), as its latest acquisition, this single-seater, designed to tow gliders, turned out to be an excellent aerobatic performer. Its features included a retractable undercarriage and automatic propeller pitch adjustment. See picture #19761 for its conception on the back of a menu!
BHT stands for the 3 designers, Erik Bratt, Karl-Erik Hilfing and Björn Törnblom. It first flew on 4 December 1944, having been constructed by Skandinaviska Aero, and was powered by a 60 hp Walter Micron engine. With a length of 5.8 m, span of 6.83 m and height of 1.9 m, it weighed a mere 240 kg and had a maximum speed of 245 km/h, and a ceiling of 7,500 m.
The aircraft underwent extensive renovation and returned to flight in December 2009, to be bought by the late Kjell Ahlberg, who ensured that it was displayed at a number of air shows. Now owned by SFF (Svensk Flyghistorisk Förening – the Swedish Aviation Historical Society, of which I am a member), it will remain on display in the Aeroseum for the foreseeable future.
