Burnelli project
Страна: США

Burnelli Avionics Corporation was the last Burnelli organisation actively to pursue the Burnelli lifting body concept. Illustrated here was that company’s study for a safe, highly utilitarian and economical aircraft powered by two Rolls-Royce 6,750 e.s.h.p. Tynes with contrarotating propellers. The design embodied emergency flotation and wing release facilities in case of ditching. The aircraft had a wing span of 122ft and a cargo capability of 4,500 cu ft. Alternative passenger versions were proposed.
