    Must have been a logistical nightmare, trying to make sure the two planes acted as one with flaps and rudder control, etc.

    Logistics has to do with supplies not aerodymics or engineering.

    Besides it was not that difficult to do. Any decent aircraft company can make it work and Heinkel did. The concept was not new and it was not a difficult task to build it.

    No there were none that were done like this. There was no point to it.

    you'd be better off spending your time developing a new bomber! she'd still have the restrictions of the original aircraft but would've been even more lumbering..........

    I thought I had heard of an idea to have a zwilling Ju 290. The picture from the link shown by JG57 Rall is from one of the luftwaffe secret projects books. It is not the fighters but is either ground attack or bombers books. I have to say that the luftwaffe secret projects series are superb and great to read and have a look at the outlandish designs.

    The idea was drawn up, but it was never built.

    Wasn't the He-111z also used as a tug for the air launched V-1!? I'm sure I've read about them, being shot down over the North Sea, by Mosquito night fighters.
