Funny you should ask that --

sometime ago after reading a book put out by the Rolls Royce Heritage Trust called the Rolls Royce Crecy (V-12 2-Stroke engine about the same size as a Merlin), I came up with this because I was looking for an airframe that could handle 8000 hp.

The idea is the engine is where the jet engine really is and the prop was driven by an extension shaft.  Because the exhaust exited through an exhaust turbine, the exhaust exits through the tail pipe.  One of the layout schemes shown in the book has the radiator core surrounding the engine supercharger, my idea was the hot cooling air exits outside of the exhaust tail pipe.

I would love to see a forward swept wing Sabre.

Very nice. Being 2-stroke and shaft driven it would have a distinctive noise :blink:

Subtle crossings between SMB2 and Sabre.

I always thought the rocket tray on the F-86d was a cool feature.  70mm rockets hidden in the fuselage.

Think about a low cost stealth demonstrator.  The engine is completely shielded from radar, the intake just needs planform alignment and a nice blended trapezoidal wing.  Tailless or v tails.

The Super Mystere also had a retractable rocket launch rack (rarely used, if at all, though), PLUS guns...

A rocket-pack is great as long as works correctly.  ;D

Premature firing during test of a proposed 3-row rocket-pack, 9-9-55, pilot was Bob Hoover.

Well, that would have made for an interesting flight! :o

Fascinating, thanks Jon  :thumbsup:

I'm actually surprised that "problem" didn't have more serious consequences  :o

Hmmmm, yes.  A flat front tyre (or even missing undercarriage) would have made for an interesting landing.

Seeing as the pilot was Bob Hoover it was probably a matter of "Aw, sh_t" and he
got on with landing the plane. Bob was a truly incredible pilot, possibly the best
US pilot ever.

Having seen Bob Hoover do his thing with the Aero Commander, like landing from a loop with NEITHER engine running from the bottom of the loop, I'm surprised he even noticed.  ;D

It probably flew better with that extra intake area anyway.  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
