Number 13 is intriguing, a jet bus? Or is there some other purpose for that contraption on the roof?

Nice pictures,thanks hesham for sharing,but I wonder why these concepts were "abandoned ",they looked very promissing,and simpler than a winged aircraft...




best regards

Not that sure, but although the Aerodyne is described as a combination of tunnel wing and
ducted fan, to my opinion it falls into the same category, as the BS "Flying Pig", with the same
limitations, fully dependent on jet borne lift alone. The faster proposals probably would generate
aerodynamic lift at higher speeds, but then they were intended for tasks, where vertical take-off/
landing wasn't considered a key point for long (e.g. the long range bomber). And for the projects
at the lower edge of the speed range, the Aerodyne Sedan for example, a kind of flying car,
safety reasons probably would have limited its use even back then, when such matters may
still been regarded as more relaxed, than today.
And for unmanned air vehicles, the concept seems not to have offered enough advantages compared
to rotary winged aircraft.
