OK-XUA-11 Toresi Straton D8 Moby Dick c/n 1 - Letnany aerodrome near Prague, Czech Republic - 8 June 1993 Ultralight aeroplanes

The Straton D8 Moby Dick is a Czech pusher configuration, parasol wing, strut-braced, V-tailed, two-seat ultralight motor glider. The motorised ultralight sailplane Straton D8 Moby Dick was original driven by a Trabant or Rotax 227-engine. The wood construction V tail design has fibreglass wingtips and weights only 180 kg. Like the D7 Mini Straton, the D8 was developed as a homebuilt motorised sail plane in the Czech Republic. It is available in partial kits or factory assembled leading edges; wing spars and ribs. Due to the low cost price, the Straton D8 is an attractive model for the homebuilder. The D8 is not only built in Europe, but also in the U.S.A.

The 1992-built Toresi Straton D8 Moby Dick OK-XUA-11 was photographed at Letnany aerodrome near Prague on 8 June 1993. The construction number of Straton D8 Moby Dick OK-XUA-11 is not really known, but some sources give s/n 1.
