Article about: I think it would be safe to say that that thing would be a bit tail heavy.

    A little different. Is it real or doctored up?

    Somebody is having some fun I guess. Maybe a propaganda photo to confuse the enemy. Or to confuse net surfers.

    The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress is a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed both the other competitors and more than met the Air Corps' expectations. Although Boeing lost the contract due to the prototype's crash, the Air Corps was so impressed with Boeing's design that they ordered 13 B-17s. The B-17 Flying Fortress went on to enter full-scale production and was considered the first truly mass-produced large aircraft, eventually evolving through numerous design advancements.

    It is a fake of course.

    It has been doing the rounds on the 'Net for a while; it is a "what if" pic -
    What if Burt Rutan designed the B-17? (Rutan was famed for his "back-to-front flying machines, notably the Vari-eze).

    There is a model of a B-17, based on this pic over at the Aircraft Resource Center pages. See here: 1/144 B-17* "What if Model" by Steve 'Buster' Keeton .
