Hi,

The Bell proposed to develope a civilian transport version of BOMI
rocket bomber in 1957,and the straight wing was replaced by a delta
wing and the estimated range was 4800 km.

Hi,

The Bell D-116 was a civilian version project of HSL-1,and the D-216 &
D-238 were the development of the same helicopter.

To me, it looks like a jet aircraft with the inlets in the nose, covered by metal mesh
or grid to retain the profile. The jet pipes seem to be on the underside under the wing.
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

This Bell project really looks like a sort o mix-up between an Heinkel 176 (in plant) and a Percival Provost (in profile), not counting the weird disposition of the engines....

Hi,

the Bell Model-323 and Model-604 were tilt rotor aircraft
projects and the D-276 was light twin helicopter project,
but the more interesting the Bell did built the mock-up
of D-306 helicopter,but no more informations.

According to The Bell Helicopter Textron Story by David A. Brown,

D-200 is Bell number for the XV-3 convertiplane.

D-261 was an attack two seater for AAFSS contest (1964).

From Bell Aircraft by A J Pelletier (Putnam),

Model 212 is the UH-1N

Model 240 was Bell UTTAS contender (1972)

Model 250 is a project from Model 206 (1962)

Please note that Bell Model designations are different from Bell Design Numbers. I don't have info for D-212, D-240 or D-250 design numbers.

Hesham,

no info available about Model 323, 604 or Design number D-276 but I found that Bell submitted two designs to AAFSS: D-261 and D-262

cheers
