Inspired by: In 2006 I stumbled upon an airplane design that captivated my imagination. Called a Lifting Fuselage, it has all the advantages people have hoped for since the jet age began. This better, safer, cheaper to build, fly and maintain design inspired me to bring this design back into the light. See more at http://www.burnelliaircraft.com/wp/blog . This shows the only known RC of Vincent Burnelli's last design before his death in 1964, a giant, high speed airliner.
