Hi folks,
Every now and again, I come across a patent and think "I just don’t get this".
Well, here is one of those: Ivan Jerome's Flying Fuselage patent, a twin-prop. with lifting-body features and powered (in some versions) by two 3,000 hp. engines. (Filed February 10th 1942.)
“Another object of my invention is to provide an aircraft which will make a landing without wings in deep water, in the manner of a buoy”, i.e. seemingly by plunging straight down into the water tail-first.
