    Anybody know where I can find some documentation on this proposed British VTOL project. The only thing I can find on the web so far is a single photograph of the underside of a builders model :? :?

    I presume you mean this one:http://www.strange-mecha.com/aircraft/VTOL/V-Concept.htm

    All I can find is it was a design in response to Specification ER161T. This was from Putnams book on AW. Tony Buttlers British Secret Projects (2 vols) doesn't mention it, nor Derek Woods 'Project Cancelled'

    Sorry, drawn a bit of a blank there!
