#1425: Turnbines

Vertical take-off planes have had vectored thrust engines since the sixties.

Today’s invention is to supply multi-engined airliners with jet engines mounted on gimbals, so that their thrust can be precisely controlled using electronics.

The jets could be mounted on upper and lower wing surfaces, since there would be much less need for all those complex, vulnerable and wing-weakening ailerons and flaps.
