In flightglobal many imagination for future from the past,
such as those projects.
The twin-boomer you present reminds the Matra R75 having 2 engines in the booms driving a central propeller. With engines almost on the centerline, it is more easy to turn as weights are more central, but there is less room for passengers/loads etc. Interesting for a fighter anyway, thanks.hesham said:a two pusher aircraft.
Great ;D How can you not love that ? It reminded me of "Indiana Jones and the Sky Pirates" (by Martin Caidin - ISBN 978-0-553-56192-0 - it features a "jet-powered zeppelin", although Caidin's version uses helium for lift, and the jets for propulsion only).hesham said:Hi,
My friend said: "a very similar project from late 1950s was made by a Canadian engineer. 'Thermodyne' the Canadian called it."Tophe said:??? ;D Incredible! A modern airship with neither hydrogen nor helium but hot air... So great an idea, why hasn't it be built and tried? I will direct to this a British friend, expert in airship, to get his opinion, I will tell you.
The missile armament stowed internally amidship wouldn’t be to unlike that of an airborne torpedo tube arrangement of sorts and principle!hesham said:Hi,
