    The engine thrust lines are not parallel with the CL of the jet.

    And why are the engines on the same pod? Would they be able to withstand the power of two engines on take-off?
    This may have been what you said, Sys, but the engines seem to be on an inward slant...whats going on there?:?:

    The odd thing is that something similar to the Hollywood prop flew in 1958. I wouldn't be surprised if it influenced the movie version.

    The BB-152 VEB was East German in origin. It had a circular-section fuselage, high wing with podded engines, and landing gear reminiscent of the B-47, complete with outrigger wheels. A crash, 'no fault in the aircraft' in 1959, then nothing heard again.

    The gross weight of the CL-99 was to be 400,000 lb.
