This cool site shows an extremely odd airplane.
The FAQs make these claims:
What are the advantages of FanWing over other forms of flight?
FanWing is quiet, stable in turbulence, and slow. It already achieves virtually vertical takeoff. FanWing cannot stall. Its already established efficiency in lift and thrust makes FanWing highly space and fuel economical. The FanWing is also simple, has few high-tech materials requirements and therefore has low maintenance and construction costs.
I don’t know what to make of this, but figure our gang of aircraft afficianados would find it interesting.
