The aircraft has a main body 1 and a pair of sub bodies 4 and 5 positioned substantially in parallel with the main body 1 and respectively in both of the left and right sides of the main body 1. A canard 3 and main wings 8 and 9 each have a central portion fixed to the main body 1 and portions fixed respectively to the sub bodies 4 and 5, near left and right ends of the wings. Engines 6 and 7 are respectively mounted on outer surfaces of the sub bodies 4 and 5. The sub bodies 4 and 5 are thinner than the main body 1. The canard 3, which is positioned closest to the fore end of the aircraft, has a shorter wing span than the other wings. The sub bodies 4 and 5 contain fuel. The fuel is supplied to the engines 6 and 7 assuring high safety. The main wings 8 and 9 are positioned, shifted respectively forth and back relative to the main body 1. Therefore, stability is not impaired even if cargos are loaded into the main body over a wide range from the bow to the tail.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
