Topic temporarily closed until we sort out what were pure artistic imaginings, technically sound proposals and downright humorous musings in both this and the similar topic found in the "Early Projects" section.

Hesham, at the bottom of the blog he has corrected the date and says it is from 1911 or earlier.

Courtesy of Modern Mechanix, an early 'smart bomb'

Imagine yourself strapped within a hollow chamber inside a huge air bomb, surrounded on all sides by high explosives. In front of you is an airplane type udder which steers the tail unit of the bomb. Windows in the nose enable you to see ahead. You’re loaded into the bomb, which is placed in its nest under the fuselage of a bombing plane. The bomber takes off, soars above a target—say, an ammunition dump of the enemy. Up above you, the pilot of the plane pulls a lever.

There seems to be a glitch with the gallery function preventing one of the pages from being shown in closeup.

One of the recurring machines in the Gerry Anderson world of 2065 was the helijet. A rotorless helicopter based on the famous Shorts Bedstead and SC1.
Reality has favoured the helicopter.

It's a naïve speculation of a radar-driven "limpet plane" able to snatch an incoming nuclear missile and ward it off its target.
