Civilian, yes, with contra-rotating props
Although it doesn't appear so, there's 2X flat sixes stuffed in there driving the props through a common gearbox.
This one I know.. David Rose's plane made to go as fast as he can
No. That one says "Baka Bomb".
That thing had all kinds of engine configurations in it including two Continental O-300s driving contra-rotating propellers through a common gearbox.
Well done Geek!
Thanks for posting it! Once I figured out what it was I enjoyed learning about it.
That aircraft was originally powered by a Lycoming O-435, it was re-engined with two Continental O-300s driving contra-rotating propellers through a common gearbox. In turn, this arrangement was replaced with a Franklin 6AB and finally a Lycoming IO-720, each driving a single propeller.
I wonder if any other air frame (that wasn't a test bed) had as many configurations?
This is version I was going to originally post... until I found the twin engine/prop one
Piaggio P.23M Transport Prototype
An aircraft designed for flights across the North Atlantic.
Cruise speed 186mph.
The P.23 first flew in 1935.
No attempt to fly the Atlantic Ocean ever took place, and its predicted maximum range capabilities never were tested.
The aircraft soon was disassembled and never flew again.
Cripes.. I had no idea there were so many types of flying boats until I started looking for this one
Another one well done Geek!
An obscure inverted gull wing beauty.
