Figured this was as good a place as any to put this
 The Blackburn triplane of 1917, made for anti-Zeppelin duty only one made as far as I can find , only tested for one month before being written off as useless. First pusher tripe fighter that I have seen.

Designed by Harris Booth and it shared many basic design features with the A.D Scout aka "Sparrow"
Zeppelin fighter he had designed while at the Air Department of the Admiralty. Four "Sparrow" were
built by Blackburn for the Department.

Are those hydrofoils, or gangplanks?

If they really are hyrdofoils, I presume their purpose is to prevent the nose digging in during large power additions or deceleration.

Ca. 60 nose-foils and floats were designed by hydrofoil pioneer Guidoni, so the probable use of the nose foils
was as guessed, to prevent the nose from digging in.

One definitely for Tophe:



Mach 2 airliner design study by the Handley Page company in 1959. Up to 150 passengers (plus fuel and baggage) were carried within a wing that was conceived to be slewed to either 72 degrees for high speed flight or 25 degrees for low speed. The crew was accommodated in a small cabin at the “forward” tip of the wing counterbalanced by a quite tall fin at the other. The four podded jet engines rotate in flight.
