Looks similar to what is simply called "Burnelli Wing" on http://www.aerofiles.com/_burnelli.html,
especially by the use of contra props. Payload is said to be 40 tons, too, just the use of six RR Merlins
with 200hp (?) each seems not to be very plausible ..   ;)
(picture from above mentioned site)
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

An artist's sketch of a 120-ton "flying wing" fruit express designed for Colonial Airlines by Vincent Burnelli, exponent of all-wing craft.

  • Any landing you can walk away from, is a good one.

Very cool pictures.

While Burnelli was a visionary, on paper, his designs had merit.  But, in reality, they did not offer some of the advantages that he said they would.  The CanCar CBY-3 was quite efficient, but the shape of the aerofoil fuselage made the headspace low and the loading door small.  This made loading people and cargo difficult.

Perhaps, today with our advanced technologies and materials, his designs may have more value.  In the same way it took time for technology to catch up woth Northrop's flying wings.

Dear Lark directed me to this link http://www.jitterbuzz.com/MAN_1939_12.html
with a Burnelli design which is not famous: CB-34.
The related patent is at http://www.google.com/patents/about?id=RaxEAAAAEBAJ&dq=patent:2286341
In the Putnam book “Canadian aircraft since 1909” page 170 (CCF/Burneli CBY-3 Loadmaster entry) I read :
The Canadian Car and Foundry company did not build the UB-14 but in 1938 proposed building the CB-34. It was considerably larger than the UB-14 and was to be powered by three Wright GR-1820-G100 Cyclone engines and was to have a loaded weight of 33,000lb (14,982kg). Have it been built it would have been the only trimotored Burnelli aircraft, but it was not proceeded with almost certainly because of the British orders for Hawker Hurricanes.”

Mark thanks a lot for this drawings. The 3d view for Burnelli projects are very rare. I'm still looking for one for the UB-20.
