McDonnell Douglas Spanloader concept

Boeing was not the only company examining flying wings. The top-mounted engines provided additional lift by taking advantage of the Coanda effect. Source: Bill Gunston, ed., The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Commercial Aircraft (London: Phoebus Publishing, 1980)

Very interesting document, hesham, but I believe you misread it.

The D-3122 is the one ABOVE. Look at the rest of the image: names of types are always immediately BELOW the drawing, not above.
