Here, too, mentioning the source would be great, both as easing further research, as well as
it should be natural to give credit to the original source.  ;)

Interesting scheme, nevertheless, with a span of 110 m, it would have been just slightly less, than
Stratolaunch ! Interesting, too, the combination of two big props in the nose of the booms with four
smaller ones at the trailing edges.
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

Unfortunately, I don't have the source. I found those images here in SPF...nothing more. Thanks!

Behold the wonders I give unto you:

Includes a PDF scan hundreds of pages in length, just the thing to fill that "I wonder what the world of aeronautics was like just after WWI" urge.

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

Junkers Project 14 - Junkers "Ju.Y" - 100 ton transport project.
 
As with the Ju.X, no company records exist for the designation of this project in the Junker Dessau archive so Schmitt allocated "Ju.Y" to this type. The outline design plan carried the reference "F.B.5243" and "Nurflugel-Flugzeug".

It was a 1930 design for a giant transport flying wing. It was to have ten diesel engines integrated into the thick middle wing area. It was to have an intermediate transmission and extension shaft to drive the ten pusher propellers located in the trailing wing.

Does anybody has any more info on this giant junkers flying wing? Such as especifications, and more images

thanks
 
Thanks for all those information, Cy-27!
Here-under a drawing of the project Y from the book "Nurflügel" by R. Horten and P. Selinger (H. Weishaupt Verlag-1985).

Hi to all!

I would like to know if we can do more information about this 10 engine Junkers design, such as drawings and technical specs. I was able to find only this picture here in the forum. Thanks!

In Rudolf Storck "Flying Wings" (Bernard & Graefe publishing) it's mentioned as Projekt Nr. FB 5243
from 1930, no more data, but perhaps that's an additional clue/keyword for further research.   ;)

Thank you, my dear friend. I'll use this new information
Cheers
