I found this on the website www.combatreform2.com/m113combat.htm
Does anyone know what aircraft or glider this is?

It seems to be a Burnelli concept with over the wing/fuselage blowing engines
to produce a STOL effect.
Maybe a variant of the two engined Burnelli GB-108..

Looks similar to a Boenig concept, we already saw here some months ago,
but sorry, couldn't find again:
(from Aviation Week 1974 14-25)

It looks like one of Bernelli's designs. I'll have to check my files to be sure.

Tailplane is not Boeing model 754.
Only two engines.

I've no other sources about this Boeing design, but it clearly is asymmetric, as
the third engine is on hte right hand side of the flight deck.

Hi,

I just went on www.combatreform.com/ and this website is infected. Therefore, I would recommend not going onto this site due to infectious malware, so you may want to refine this post.
