First I thought it's the OMAC-1, but this is totally wrong. Maybe the Machen Laser Jet (it's only a speculation, because I can't find any illustration on my harddisk) ???. Sorry.

Hello. This is a derivative of three motors of the Contender Aircraft 202 (12 passengers): the Contender 303 (19 passengers) a project of airship of businesses and regional transport of the ' 90 with engines Rolls Williams FJ-44 and it had to offer transcontinental reach to a cruise speed of mach 0.72. Was designed by Larry Heuberger (designer of Learstar 600). Its main characteristic was its new design of wing made with a new alloy of aluminum and integral fuel tanks in the inner wing section. It had to fly for the first time in the middle of 1996, I do not know the destiny of the project.

(information and pic from PM Argentinian Edition , July 1994, no more data)

Here's another article about the Contender projects.

I suppose this topic could be renamed as "Contender Aircraft's 202 and 303 projects"...

Oh. Then I guess the two topics should be merged and renamed. Also, "Condender" is a typo. The real name is CONTENDER.
