The Britten-Norman Trislander, one of the few aircraft with a powerplant in the middle of its fin (the 727 and Trident had dorsal intakes, but the engines themselves were in the tailcones, not mounted in the fin).

Except for the DC-10 and the old Soviet ekranoplans, I can't think of any other aircraft that incorporated this odd design configuration --- or am I forgetting any?
