looks like those designs were developed at around the same time, maybe the ducted fan concept occurred to lots of aviation enthusiasts around the world and they were all trying to outdo one another in making it feasible.

here are some really interesting designs from the inventor of the plane you posted, thought you might enjoy them.

I see the mods are still sporting Trekkie avatars


Geez, I thought maybe that one would have lasted a little longer. You aren't a member of homebuiltairplanes.com are ya? I posted a thread about it there a few weeks ago.


Hey Trekkie, you can post one now too if you have one. You know, I am continuously surprised with the amount of knowledge some of the members have here at ATS.

Thats it! 100 years before, it was the exciting time - when people tried to imagine, how the aircraft should look like.

Heres another old one, keeping with the theme of the last one posted




BTW, this actually DID fly! A little bit, anyways
