MacDonald S-20

The S-20 utilizes all-metal construction but keeps it simple by the extensive use of pop rivets. It features open-cockpit seating for one, low wings and conventional tail-wheel landing gear. The fuselage is of steel-tube truss construction with a light alloy skin. The constant-chord wings are also covered with the same light alloy skin.
 
First flight was made on March 9, 1972 by N106AB. S-21 was the designation for plan-built aircraft by home-builders.
