    Now if only they'll get the right wheel configuration

    Interesting concept. With those struts it has a kids LEGO feel to it though.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. A 1932 advertisement:

    Now ask yourself *which* Boeing? ;)
    None of us will be boarding this one anytime soon.

    Nauga,
    and his paper airplanes

    Looking at that design I see no room for a shock/strut for the landing gear. I wonder if that wing was prone to stress and cracking from a hard landing.

    So who would like to climb up on the strut to fuel the plane?

    I think they figured it out a long time ago.

    Looks great. Where will they find room to park it?

    The Short SD3-30.
    Someone told me the strut generated about 5% of the lift.

    Wonder why so much negative dihedral. Seems like that would be a problem

    Not in the modern day of fly-by-wire. The computer creates stability for the pilot even if the airframe/design is not inherently stable.

    Yeah. If the "wire' failed you'd be going down anyway from something else besides losing it around the roll axis. Still seems hitting a wingtip when landing could be a problem in a stiff gusty crosswind.

    Yeah. And Lockheed. C5, C141, must be others. Guess it ain't as big a deal as I first thought

    High wings and swept wings have the same effect as dihedral, namely producing a rolling moment away from sideslip (conveniently known as 'dihedral effect'). Even FBW airplanes usually have a bare-airframe design goal of some level of dihedral effect (the goal of stable or unstable and the level depends on the design and the designer). The struts also almost certainly provide some dihedral effect, so the anhedral may be just to reduce the strong rolling tendency making it easier for the control system to manage.

    Beat me to it. I was wondering about lift from that strut

    Irrelevant. The strut is the location for the new Ultra-Economy Plus seating. No overhead bin space, though.

    Ah. So swept wing gives the same effect. Makes sense now. Thx
