Famed Aircraft Designer James Bede Dies

Jul 18

linuxwrangler writes with a bit of news overlooked from last week, but worth noting: Prolific aircraft designer James “Jim” Bede has died at age 82. Although Bede designed numerous aircraft he is most commonly associated with the BD-5J, the “world’s smallest jet”, that was famously used to help James Bond escape in the movie “Octopussy.” Bede’s company currently has that aircraft for sale.
