This rather strange looking beastie is the Douglas XB-42 "Mixmaster" (1944-48) - a U.S. experimental bomber designed to be "faster than the de Havilland Mosquito but with defensive armament and twice the bomb load." Their unconventional idea was installing it's two engines within the fuselage, to drive a massive pair of contra-rotating propellers built in the tail in a pusher configuration, thus leaving the wing, and fuselage, free of drag-inducing protrusions, ahem, should you see what I mean.
Two prototypes were built, but, with the big WW II party soon to end, coupled with the arrival of those pesky jet engines, new priorities somewhat canned the project.

Huge congrats - and possible medal - to Sir (surely soon?) David Cundall, who, if the latest Intel is to be believed, has finally located a cache of historic Spitfires buried in crates in the Burmese jungle.
The 62 year old British farmer spent over £130,000 of his own money and 16 years searching for the planes after being told they were buried there at the end of the Second World War.

True Brits: 1982. The frozen isle of South Georgia. Eve of the Falklands War. Outnumbered hundreds to one, just 22 Royal Marines are attacked without warning by Argentinian Puma gunships. But, remember Chaps, they are Royal Marines! They return fire with with rifles and machine guns and shoot down a Puma gunship as it tries to land enemy troops.

Ideal for early "Old 'n' Bold" covert missions, this amazing Chap here is the Cox-Klemin XS; an American experimental scout biplane, and the first aircraft to be launched and recovered from a submarine. It was a simple single-seat seaplane that could be disassembled and assembled quickly... for rather obvious reasons. The U.S. Navy had 12 of these clever blighters were built 'tween 1922-1923, and despite a series of successful trials - and, no doubt, several Top Secret deniable insertions, all these extraordinary experimental aircraft were scrapped in 1926.

HMG! Listen to your Defenders of the Realm!
If HMS Illustrious was put in reserve for 10 years the difference in its scrap price at the end of that time can be expected to be minuscule. Yet if a war was to break out the ship would be worth its weight in gold to the country.

Piasecki AirGeep: In 1957, Piasecki Aircraft was awarded an Army Transportation Command contract to develop a "flying jeep." It had to be a VTOL vehicle, able to operate at low altitudes at speeds up to 70 mph, and, amazingly, cable of delivering atomic weapons. Those were the days, eh? Two were built, which could also fly at several thousand feet. They were quite stable, able to hover and fly beneath trees or between buildings, and were surprisingly effective as a weapons platform. Despite their many positive qualities, the poor ol' Airgeep, was deemed by the U.S. Army to be mechanically ill-suited to the extreme toils of combat, and the project was cancelled. One survives to this day at the U.S. Army Transportation Museum, Fort Eustis, Virginia.
