Ron Cole's Luftwaffe Horten HO 229 Flying Wing All-Over Shirt

These shirts are part of Ron's opening salvo into clothing design. Unlike other aviation art or graphic design within this genre, Ron has used the entire surface of each garment, front and back, to blend his original compositions with the style and cut of the garment. Each shirt is a new design, incorporating Ron's art, to be something entirely unique: a piece of wearable art, signed by the artist.

The Horten Ho 229, the world's first jet-powered flying wing
Securing the allocation of turbojets was difficult in wartime Germany, as other projects carried higher priority due to their rank in the overall war effort. Although the turbojet-equipped Ho 229 V2 nearly reached a then-astonishing 800 km/h (500 mph) in trials, the production of the third prototype V3 was given over to the coachbuilder Gothaer Waggonfabrik, subsequently called Gotha Go 229. The Go 229 was captured by the U.S. Army at the end of World War 2, in which the completed but unflown V3 third prototype aircraft is presently housed at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C.
.
The Ho 229 had potential but was too late to see service. The Horten brothers also worked on the Horten H.XVIII, an intercontinental bomber that was part of the Amerikabomber project. Among other advanced Horten designs of the 1940s was the supersonic delta-wing H.X, designed as a hybrid turbojet/rocket fighter with a top speed of Mach 1.4, but tested only in glider form (as the Horten H.XIII).
