Dust Runner Concept by MikeDoscher Dust Runner Concept by MikeDoscher
The stars are denied to us. The great ships of old have fallen, nevermore to rise. Amid the ruins of great things, there is still work to do, and some principle of life survives and even prospers.

With enough thrust and a profound enough ignorance of physics, you can make anything fly.

just curious, the rear landing gear/stand/slider seems won't function when it's in VTOL config?

Ah, the rear skids rotate at the ankle when landing. That front strut extends and it pivots at the rear. When it flight it sits like this prevent heat damage to the skid and reduce drag. It's awkward, but the whole machine is pretty awkward. :)

Thank you. :)

I really should have made up a fraudulent attribution for that quote. It seems like something that the engineer who said "All models are wrong. Some are useful." would say.

I like the "profound ignorance of physics" part.
And the pic!

Either the designer of the F-4 or the J79. Maybe both. They're like the Leopold and Loeb of delta-vee.
