Mike, etal,
    Maybe you can help me. I recall as a large lad or young man seeing an
issue of Mechanix Illustrated, or somesuch, talking about a "land on tail"
VTOL that original young Hiller was developing. My basic memory is that it
was either jet or rocket powered: I certainly don't remember a propellor on
the craft.
    I looked in vain among the VTOL you linked us to and did not find it.
Have you any information on such a craft.
