For a bit more enjoyment for us armchair-riding experts, a more traditional and less ephemeral aircraft. The funny bits: it's allegedly designed to fly up to 65000 ft (20 km) high, and is powered by a kerosene-fed diesel motor. Was never flown yet, though. #aircraft #link https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/28409/the-mysterious-and-potentially-revolutionary-celera-500l-aircraft-may-fly-soon


Pusher engined aircrafts are notorious for overheating. They were tried numerous times during ww2 and around, but the issue was never solved. Still looks cool though
