Patents - Volmer Jensen
« on: May 27, 2007, 01:30:25 am »
Whilst looking for Volmer Jensen details I came along a series of patent drawings at http://www.adventurelounge.com/aircraft/.

It is a collection of designs ranging from ones that we can recognise, such as the original DC-4 and the P-38, to some extremely bizarre ones like the 4-hull design I have attached.
But, let's get back to Volmer Jensen. Would anybody have any information of the attached two designs?
