Gee Bee

I don't think I truly appreciated just how obscene a Gee Bee was before seeing this picture.

I got a chance to see Delmar Benjamin fly a replica of this GeeBee (including an inverted ribbon cut) once. The rudder has a chord of about 16", and is about 8" wide at the hinge line. Delmar said the rudder didn't do anything below about 90 knots, and was way too effective at full speed.
