Bede BD-7

From PlaneSpottingWorld, for aviation fans everywhere
Type Utility aircraft
Designed by Jim Bede
Number built 1

The Bede BD-7 was a light aircraft constructed in the United States in 1976. It shared the Bede BD-5's pusher propeller configuration but was considerably larger. The fuselage was all-metal, and the wings used the unique "panel-rib" wing construction pioneered on the Bede BD-4. Some sources state that the prototype (registration N7BD) flew in December 1976, but most suggest that it was never actually completed, much less flown.
