    My present for you is a short clip about the Dornier Do-31E (E = Experimental), which is a late 1960s VTOL design for a jet-powered transport aircraft originally planned for the German Bundeswehr. The prototypes of the Do-31 made more than hundred successful flights, until the whole program was unfortunately cancelled in April 1970. For more information, visit the Do-31 Wikipedia page (english) or Do-31.de (german).

    I found this clip on the YouTube channel of the Bundeswehr and I'm sorry it's only available in German language. However, it's definitively worth watching. Enjoy! p-)



    Just stumbled upon a second clip (english):
