Jemiba said:From "The Aeroplane" .1.56, another impression of the Lippisch Aerodyne,
with a short description of the principle .
Jemiba said:The article only mentiones the re-direction of the engines airflow, so not
only giving propulsion, but also lift for the aircraft. Actually, the style of the
article seems a little bit vainly to me. A.Lippisch mentiones, that several people
has regarded his wingless designs as inherent uneconomical, but he completely
refused those arguments.

Very interesting. If I'm not mistaken, there is apparently no guarantee that this was a real World War II project at all, right??Jemiba said:You want it, you get it !

From the Lippisch site,many unbuilt projects;
