    Another German twin diesel aircraft.

    http://www.hp-aircraft.de/edoc/news.html

    The Germans love to put the engines in different places. The aircraft is being tested at an airfield near Peenemunde.

    Probably looks quite nice once the fans are turning

      Looks a bit like a Bombardier
      but this one has 2 diesels instead of 2 jet engines

        The wheels are turning! Bombardier maybe, but you can't call this a VLJ can you!

          Another curio about this design is that the V8s are placed in the fuselage and are linked to the propshaft by belts.
          See how they wheel, bank and glide? Perfect. All in one.
