Not often you see a hold at so close a point to the full ignition on a launch, donít know what that means for the turnaround on the Delta IVH to try again for launch.

IIRC one of the Falcon launches was aborted moments after ignition and they just shut the engines down.

here is a report from DTIC for Boeing-Vertol tilt-rotor projects,they called it D213,and I don't
know if it was meaning BV.213 or not,also the Helijet design.

Regarding: Bell Ducted Propeller Assault Transport Report D181-945-008 15 May 1956 - Standard Aircraft Characteristics

SAC Chart is at: https://apps.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/102194.pdf

I had found it before,but I thought it was the same drawing but clearer,and it's the name of
report only,and not the designation of the drawing.

The Do-212 was intended as a post war civil light transport. Though development could actually be traced back to 1938.

Regarding message #39 about the Convair proposal for the C-141.  Many moons ago, I saw a Convair propaganda movie about their proposal.  It may have been unsolicited.

In the early 1950s, I was a line boy at one of the two major airports in Louisville, Ky.  During the week before the Kentucky Derby, it seemed like every executive aircraft in the USA flew in (surely an exaggeration)!  I remember executive conversions of B-23, -24,-25 and even a Martin B-28 with a large oval window in the aft fuselage. there were several Douglas B-26s (aka A-26), but IIRC, the most common executive conversions were Lockheed Venturas.

Best Regards,

The 111 was designed as a passenger plane like how the 109 was designed as a fast mail carrier.

Please do not forget the famous Dornier Do-17 airliner..... ;D
