Johns X-3 Rason Warrior

06/30/2009. Alvis R. "Ray" Johns, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, USA, designed in 1947 the Rason Warrior, that was constructed in four years of part-time work, in collaboration with Paul L. Witmer. The five-seat aircraft was designed for short-field operations in remote areas and had a large wide-chord wing, fixed panted undercarriage and could easily be converted to a cargo-carrier. Power came from an 185 hp Lycoming O-435-I six-cylinder horizontally-opposed air-cooled engine. It received the EAA Award for Achievement in 1963.
