I live in Southampton and I havent seen or heard anything of the like. The closest thing that it resembles to my mind is a Canberra with droptanks on the wings (but they are now out of service). I guess they got the engines located on the wrong 'bulges' and missed the tail.

It occurs two months before April so I guess it could be a real 'sighting' but redoubtably a mix-up in the identification.

Here's a hint:
This content idea came from the comic "Area 88", written by Kaoru Sintani.

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

A proposal from the 1960's, eh? Maybe Orion knows. If anyone would know, its Scott.

Never heard of it, but doesn't mean it wasn't in the works.
The Kaiser-Hughes HK-1 was of course the other designation of the gigantic Hughes H-4 Hercules flying-boat. This "HK-2" is merely a jet-powered version of the original Hercules... but I never heard of Howard Hughes planning to transform the HK-1 in such a way...
The HK-1 has always fueled popular imagination (movies such as Rocketeer, Tucker or Aviator come to mind) and it would of course make for interesting "what ifs", so who knows?

I love its looks, anyway. It was a great design for its time... shame it did only one hop over the sea...
The single Martin Mars was not as big or as handsome, but it still serves as a firebomber to this day!
