Hello guys

Anybody knows something about this design?

I found it in the web. It looks like an CO-IN aircraft, maybe a competitor of the Rockwell OV-10 Bronco.

Thanks

Raravia

Sadly... I've seen that design before, on a page featuring designs by one specific guy from, I believe, General Dynamics. I say "sadly" because I have no idea what website, or who the guy was.

A number of largely similar plane designs, as I recall.

Guys

This is where i found it, is a quiz between members of another web, the link is http://www.belowtopsecret.com/thread109762/pg79

I could like orionblamblam said a General Dynamics design, but it reminds me the flying pancake, the Vought XF5U-1 or a derivate.

What do you think?

I don't believe it was a GD design, but instead designed *by* a guy from GD, I think after he struck out on his own. He designed m(going off dim memory here) a number of other planes of the same simlalr sort of shape, all civilian jobs... kits and the like. I didn't pay much attention because it was Just Some Guy, and the designs stood no chance of getting built.

Jerry Blumenthal was the guy! I've downloaded the 3-view a few years ago at http://www.members.home.net/twitt/BLUMENTHAL.htm , but now it doesn't work :( .

Scott, do you remember the name?

Btw, I saved two further files from his formerly website.

You know what's sad... back when this first came up, I went to twitt.org, because I was sure that's where I had seen it. I was right... but I couldn't find this specific page. Oy.
