In the cartoon book "Economix" explaining economy, I have seen several drawings of aircraft, not completely realistic nor crazy but somewhere in between:
(Ju-87, MiG-15, Super-Constellation, DC-10)

Perhaps - thinking laterally on a what-if site, the shark teeth are just painted on and there is no air intake at the front (in the teeth). The - your - eyes see what they want to see and the black is not an air intake.

Then - the exhaust stubs are from a cooling device or compressor for a nuclear propulsion unit. Such an engine would explain why this jet was such an opponent. Simple really.

Actually, Tophe, that's an F-86, not a MiG-15

Thanks! I thought the star was meaning Soviet, but the low tailplane is not matching this interpretation, you are right.

In a (French) Walt Disney cartoon booklet I bought for my son is a weird plane that seems what-if, no?:

It's a nice looking aircraft Tophe, very much in the style of the period.

Is that Donald Duck in the co-pilots seat ?

Last month I bought for my son a child magazine: "Les trésors de Picsou" (Walt Disney's Uncle Scrooge) #44, and I found this airplane, inventive it seems:
Here, in Uncle Scrooge #47 booklet, this character is Donald's uncle Scrooge.
And in the same booklet is another airplane it seems (twin-engine? jet or propeller powered?):

Ah cheers Tophe. I couldn't work out if it was Donald (my favourite) or Scrooge McDuck

In the next issue was a DC-3-like with additional jets on the tail

And in a pleasant Belgian cartoon book, I found a weird V-tail single jet plane, I am almost sure it is a what-if dream, no? :unsure: ;D

It looks like a jet powered Bonanza, quite a nice looking thing though.
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! :)
