|LEGO → System → Indiana Jones → Raiders of the Lost Ark|
7683 Fight on the Flying Wing was released in 2008 as part of the Indiana Jones Raiders of the Lost Ark line. Included are the Minifigures Indiana Jones, Enemy Boxer, Marion Ravenwood, and an Enemy Pilot.
- The head of the mechanic is identical to the head of the Hoth Officer from 8083 Rebel Trooper Battle Pack and other minifigures.
- The Flying Wing Wings Piece is all composed of one big piece with some stickers and pieces attached to it.
- The Flying Wing design is similar to (and likely based on) the Horten Ho 229 Fighter/Bomber, a Nazi prototype for the first jet-powered flying wing craft. Fortunately the real craft never flew, although its stealth capabilities were revealed by later tests to have been sufficient to counter the radar of its day. It also resembles the Lippisch P. 104-106, a propeller-driven flying wing concept from the same period.
- Some of the Airplane Mechanic minifigures heads in the sets were printed with grey moustache.
- A preliminary image of the set had a Swastika in the background.
