Description Composite carbon fiber fast build kit with small number of parts that join via fillets allowing construction at truly a fraction of the time (large model airplane concept). Structurally stronger than a traditional build using ribless composite wings,fuse, lat and horizontal stapes, high g crash cage/cockpit) (pressurized), fuselage lift (Burnelli), fowler flaps,and anti icing via engine coolant seating 4-6(easy access). Engine is single LS series GM off shelf LS1-LS7 belt drive(harmonic and PSR) either single engine or redundancy in engines and belts possible. Turbo normalized with waste gate providing inexpensive pressurization of cockpit, mandating off shelf air-conditioning(auto) for efficient cruising @ 25-2900 ft. Designed to fit in most standard T-hangers and using a similar landing gear as the Cessa 210. Fixed landing gear is also a possibility. Coolant is piped to all leading edge surfaces with engine and exhaust ducted for ram jet effect(Meridith).
Source Quality

5 - The source material used to create this model was Completely Inaccurate. This means the creator thought of the vehicle or part as he or she made the model, but did not use any pictures or drawings and had no dimensions.

It had to have been a fire. I it was, the electronics (acars, radio communications, sattalite communications, transponder etc.) would have been destroyed before the pilots knew which they were and the pilots would have had CO1 poisening and died with the aircraft still set for the same heading which it traveled on untill the fuel ran out which would explain why thier was sattelite communications for 8 hours after and thier was 8 hours of fuel left. boeing was also expiriencing fires in testing for the original 787 design which had many of the same parameters as the 777 so it makes perfect sence.

Yes, I did hear. I can see no purpose or reason for this to be a purposeful act, but I can not understand it as an accident either. It is an enigma at this time and may remain that way if clues are not forthcoming soon.

did you here about malaysia airlines 370 with 239 dead horrible crash but still a mystery happened on march 8th saturday at 2:40 in the morning

The nose bump was to draw attention to a discussion of the Burnelli effect and fuselage lift vs the current canard. It was initially an awkward attempt at blending the two and a question of how this would affect induced drag, lift, and in general performance. I resisted a simple canard out of curiosity, I am not sure where to discuss this, being new to OpenVSP and how to utilize sketch pad to answer some of questions regarding this.

somthings up with the nose good otherwise
