The UB-38A-2 was different from the UB-38A in having its 2 engines on the centerline. The rear one was shut down after take off to save fuel.

For very long subsonic flights over the Pacific, two pilots shoulda be there...

Made by Burnelli or not, a Lightning shoulda be twin-boom, not triplex-boom...

Without huge tailplane, does this one count as quadruple boom?

Tophe and the Amazing Technicolor Lightning Whif!  ;D

I'm kinda partial to the triple-engined one your wife inspired and to the single-engined one derived from that.  :)

Thanks for your answer... Do you have other ideas for a Burnelli Lightning?

Google pictures, for "Burnelli", finds immediately a jet-Burnelli patent at http://www.mysteriesofcanada.com/Canada/Canada_Car/burnelli_designs.htm
So... here is a Burnelli Jet-Lightning:

What? A Lightning shoulda be twin-engined? No problem for the Burnelli design team:

Far away from my naive dreams, I shoulda face the bloody urgency in 1945: fighting the Me-163 Komet transsonic fighter... This requires rocket and swept wings, Burnelli or not:

What? I shoulda be more realist? and respect Burnelli's tailplane and contra-props? I fear I am unable to be realistic but any transformation is welcome:

(with 8 micro-engines...)

What do you mean "micro-engines do not exist, Burnelli was designing a huge bomber"? Well I do not understand the meaning of "exist" and I dislike terror-bombing, but I woulda imagine a huge airliner with 8 normal engines:
