Lippsch's "Aerodyne". If this isnt the oddest looking thing youve ever seen, I dont know what is...

That definitely scores at least 11/10 on the weird scale :shock:. Did this actually fly?!

Based on what little I can find, this was a picture of a mock-up.

It never actualy flew and thus, perhaps, does not really belong here.

I dunno. The DM-1 never flew, and the P.13a never got off the drawing board, sooo...

Interesting story. Dr. Lippish(sp?) was trying to create a VTOL aircraft. His concept took a big engine and added flaps at the back to direct the exaust downward when taking off and landing, and to swivel back when in level flight.

This mock-up was for a remote controlled experimental aircraft (thats why you cant see any cockpit; there isnt one).

His experiments never got very far, but today we can see his key concept in the only successful VTOL aircraft in production- the AV8B Harrier.

I did find a site that produces a resin model of a "What if" version. Including some colorful versions

Hmmm, this has potential...

You know, it Does rather look like a P.13a rammed into the back of a Caparoni flying Barrel.
