This image is great. So great many reproduced it. However, I tried to trace down its source (reference), and was not able to locate. When exactly was it published, in which magazine, etc. Anybody help?

Very interesting, thanks Hesham. ;D
I have a question: how do you read the picture #64? Is this a 2-rotor asymmetric compound, with a short starboard wing? or else a 3-rotor symmetric compound, with one of the starboard blades hiding the starboard wing? ???

Thanks to Hesham who thinks it is asymmetric and sent a link, I went to
http://img217.imageshack.us/f/histoireaviation7es9.jpg/
and got a bigger view. Still difficult to decide: asymmetric or not?

(according to http://www.ladepeche.fr/article/2000/01/01/279962-Ce-chocolat-qui-faisait-rever-a-l-an-2000.html from Google and http://grandformat.blogspot.com/2006/09/planches-images-chocolat-histoire-de.html )

Symmetrical. Look closely, you can see the end of one of the starboard blades between the the edge of the picture and the starboard engine.


cheers,
Robin.

Why not ? Isn't it a good idea to have the television presenter reading your love letters to you ? ;D
Or payment requests, medical reports and rejected applications for employment ?
Don't know if it would be that much worse, than your private data sold by internet providers or
carriers of social networks. :-\

As I understand it, Hammer Birchgrove was hinting at the fact that it HAD actually happened in the form of the internet and the e-mail... check out the smiley!

Indeed. While I'd like to see (easy-to-use) jetpacks as much as the next guy, it's fun when a futuristic prediction for once comes true, even if they may seem rather mundane. :)

...Although I'd get a total kick out of Unca Walter Cronkite reading me e-mails from my ex's, the concept of someone like that schmuck Dan Rather or that commie bastard Peter Jennings doing so tends to churn the stomach a bit.

That being said, I *hope* you caught the original poster's attempt at humor, right?

Amazing! You learn something new every day!!

Did you notice that the rear cockpit is smaller in the second picture while in the first pic it's a standard P-80 cockpit?

Whilst trawling the "net", I came across this!!

German (Nazi that is) planning gone MAD!?!?

To "quote" from the web-page...

Transportation Projects

At the same time on both sides of the Atlantic were planned aircraft that could carry 400 to 450 km / h Reisegeschwindkeit 50-100 passengers over several thousand kilometers.
Visionary and gigantic, a single leaf-air ship of Adam Antes, a sculptor from Darmstadt.

So far I know , " German " don't means " nazi" ,but it's another story ...

The Adam Antes' design was not only " imagination " :it was patended in 1932 ,and models flew ... some (very bad) photos in flight were published in " Flugsport " 1934 .

No intended offence in using the term Nazi, just that the image was from a website about Nazi architecture!!!!!
