Definitions for "Abrial A-12 Bagoas"
The A-12 was a highly unusual experimental glider designed by Georges Abrial in the early 1930s. Not only was the design tailless, but it featured wings of extremely small aspect ratio (1:6) - short and stubby, unlike the usually long and slender wings of a sailplane. After encouraging tests of models in the wind tunnel at St Cyr, Abrial built a full-sized version.
