j FLYING SUBMARINE—That's the idea being worked on by All-American Engineering Company of Wilmington, Del. Patent for the idea has been kept secret for several years by the Defense Department. Drawing above shows how it would work. At bottom is the submarine, gliding under water powered by a marine engine. In center is the same craft, marine propeller retracted within the fuselage, skimming the waves on retractable water skis. It is now operating on a jet engine with air intakes on the upper part of the fuselage. Using this second power plant, the craft takes off, resembling the standard swept-wing jet fighter, top. It is only in thinking stage of development
