Fantasy Planes. Sometimes I think the most interesting airplanes are the ones that never got built

Excellent, especially Sexos - the BatPlane and the utterly improbable Gyroptere

Luft '46 - During WWII, German aircraft designers put forth many aircraft project ideas, which ranged from the practical to the bizarre. Some of these ideas were ahead of their time and reached a more advanced design stage, and even affect aircraft today.

Hmm, the Gyroptere reminds me of Vedic (?) UFO's and celestial chariots.

Maybe one day someone will cover the Avro Arrow here on the blue.

I wonder if the crew of 155 includes the barber and the orchestra.

Thanks growabrain - this made me dig up my copy of Yesterday's Tomorrows. Such fun stuff.
