    tough.. i couldnt really find a usefull text about this airplane.

    but.. its the first supersonic VTOL ever build. but, the project was canseled, because it was to expensive.

    If you go to the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany you can see many of these VTOL aircraft. There is a nice Dornier sitting out in front of it in the courtyard.

    I personally dont think it would have been a very good aircraft, mostly because it would not have been cost effective.
