Hi,

here is a strange circle-wing airplane,from Lubert VanDellen and called LH-2.

VanDellen LH-2 [N4826E] (Airpower Museum)

LH-2 1959 = 2pO-ChwM; unknown reciprocating engine; v: x/100/x. Gross wt: 900#. The register classified it as a "rotocraft"—instead of a wing, it had a circular saucer-like disk which was said to rotate (Magnus Effect?) A small engine with a tractor prop was located in the front end, and the opposite end sported a butterfly tail. [N4826E]. Taxi-tested but never flown, donated to AAA's Airpower Museum.
