Must think their propulsion system is pretty reliable!!! As Ian pointed out it's not internal combustion... Shocked Roll Eyes

I love the shape though!

It kind of reminds me of the 1936 "Things to Come" movie.

Wow! Pusher props on the wingtips! I'd like to see how they handle an 'engine out' emergency! Found it. And its electric too. Someone else can identify it.

Sorry everyone, I am falling down on the job. Here is an airplane that I hope will last more than a day.

toulouse, I had just read about the airplane and still remembered it. Which is the real accomplishment Grin

Mine last entry only lasted (2) days?

I need to search for a difficult a/c this time.
