I read a book in which said there is a transportor called OMAC that use canard with flat wing and fit prop. at tail. I think that must be close to Kyushu Shinden very much. But that is my imagine. Who have seen that aircraft before please show me.

Only very vaguely emile.

In the early 1980's several companies launched canard pusher exec transport designs as there was a belief, inspired by the success of Burt Rutans canard light aircraft from the Vari-Viggen through to the Quickie, Vari Eze and Defiant, that the format offered great advantages over conventional designs and would in fact become the standard layout for all exec transports by the year 2000.

The Omac Laser 300 was just one of the new designs offered which included the Avtek 400, Piaggio Avanti and Beech Starship. The Italian Avanti, originally developed in partnership with Gates (of Learjet fame), is the only one to have been produced successfully.
