This old video is great.
Let’s talk about some of the designs they show, shall we?
I kinda dig the flying wing one, the tubular one, and the one at 6:11 with the quite unique wing shape.
I wondered why anyone would say “oddest airplane flies tail-first” about the plane at 1:42
Seriously the Wright Flyer wasn’t that long ago from their perspective.
Edit: the circular wing one (at around 7 minutes in) probably inspired the engineers that designed the E-2 Hawkeye’s radome. I once heard in a documentary that it provides an astounding amount of lift to the plane.
Edit2: and I hope @Smokinhole’s helicopter flies better than the one at 13 min.
