This proposal for a STOL transport with four TF34 engines came from Lockheed Georgia. "Der Flieger" published an artist's impression and a picture of a windtunnel model in issue 5/1972.

I'm looking for more information (as usually, model number etc.). Who can help?

My dear boxkite,

I think it was a version of C-141,and I will search about it,
it was mentioned in a book,but I don't remember its name
now.

"Only stupid men are tidy, the genius will master every chaos !" ..
... but a genius will master it at once, not weeks later !

Here's an article from Aviation Week 4/72 about Lockheeds QSTOL tests,
although without another designation ...

Here's a concept model of the Lockheed ATA (Advanced Transport Aircraft? Advanced Technology Airlifter?) I believe it represents the airplane being described here. Based on the port cabin door size, I would say it is roughly equivalent to a C-141.
