The smallest twin-engined aircraft is believed to be the MC-I5 'Cricri' which was first flown 19 July 1973 and has since been reproduced around the world from plans and kits. Designed by the French aeronautical engineer Michel Colomban, the 72.56 kg (160 lb) aluminium 'Cricri' (known as the Cricket in the USA) has a wing span of 4.9 m (16 ft) and measures 3.91 m (12 ft 10 in) long. The prototype aircraft was powered by two 6.7 kW (9 hp) Rowena engines.
