Dornier Do 31

Post  The 16th Pilot on Thu Jun 14, 2012 3:43 pm

The Do 31 was a experimental VTOL Jet transport built by West Germany in the 1960s. It was the first, and so far only, vertical take-off jet transport ever built. It was canceled partly due to the fact that the large drag and weight of the lift engine pods reduced the useful payload and range in comparison to conventional transport aircraft.
