Hi Everyone!

Here's some information on a VSTOL transport design, the Vanguard Omniplane Model 30.

All I've been able to find is a three-view and one other illustration, but if anyone can find other information such as Tech Data please post it on this website. Thanks!

Chuck

Hi hesham!

Thanks very much for the information. Actually that's where I originally got my information, however I guess I should have been a bit more specific when I was asking for Tech Data on this aircraft, as I was thinking more the dimensions of the aircraft.

Thanks again for taking time and making the effort for researching this information for me.

Chuck

Here's another 3-view (and an artist's impression) with some
dimensional data
(from :Vertical Take-off and Landing <VTOL> Aircraft, (Series of papers ... of
a conference held on Dec. 10-12, 1962) ; Consulting ed.: I. B. Laskowitz )

A direct development of the Omniplane design, the Vanguard Model 18 was meant as a 36-40 passenger short haul transport powered by two Allison T56 turbines.
