    Enclosed you will find a small list of aircrafts Push/Pull Configuration which I have painstakingly collected
    over the last month.
    I know this list isn't complete: any help to make it more comprehensive is welcome!

    OK let's start with some easy adding:

    The Savoia-Marchetti S.55

    EDIT:
    I saw in your list the Savoia-Marchetti S.65, what a beatiful racer it was! It was really "a pilot between two engines and little more"!

    Here's a rather bizzare one, the Colani C-309. Although this is a model the aircraft was built, but as far as I know never flown. Well, I never heard about the crash anyway :)

    FOKKER KI (M9)

    The Fokker KI (M9) with an 80 hp 7-cyl rotary Oberursel UI engine fore and aft of the central nacelle. Anthony Fokker complained that the twin booms flexed too much and the experiment ended.

    Splendid Graeme,
    thanks very much for the very rare pics of the Focker and Siemens-Schuckert.
    What I'm aiming at is to prepare a listing as complete as possible of aircrafts in push/pull configuration"
    (i.e: having both a push and a pull prop in the fuselage, like for instance the Do-335 or the Fokker D/XXIII).
    This means excluding all other aircrafts with engine nacelles housing both a push and a pull prop, like for instance the Do-X, many french aircrafts inbetween wars, etc.
    I hope I've made my object clear.
    Thanks again for putting at my disposal your immense knowledge.

    Hi Marcogrifo,
    you are always very helpful and a good friend.
    However please have a look of what I wrote Graeme with post #14. This will save you precious searching time!
    I know it's my fault I should have indicated more precisely what I was after and I hope I have cleared now any doubt as to the object of my research.
    Thanks again and have a nice evening
    carson1934

    PS Yes indeed, the S-65 was a splendid contraption!

    Hi Verner,
    thanks very much for the Dornier's and B/36 pics.
    However, as explained to Graeme with my yesterday's post #13, these are of little or no use to me because I'm trying to compile a listing of "aircrafts in push/pull configuration", i.e. of aircrafts with both push and pull propellers in or within the fuselage excluding those with engine nacelles housing both a pull and a push prop.
    I'm sorry if I didn't make myself sufficiently clear and hope you do not regard me as a nuisance...
