Its always mind settleing to find other people, with your name, that has done great things! It doesnt matter if this man's dream did not come fully around to be reconized as a world mover in aero industries, he did something great!

Interesting design, looks kinda like either a leaf-eating aphid bug, or a flying school bus. It must have depended on repelling the earth by its shear ugliness, rather than depending on the underpowered Lycoming recip running most likely at full MP to barely remain in a HIGE hover, probably near sea level, with 7 clueless passengers who I'm sure thought that was the coolest thing they've ever rode in, as shown in the top photo. No engineer today could ever come close to matching such creepiness in design ettiquette. Poor guys had no turbine engine yet available to design a proper bird around. The 50's were a weirdly innovative time for sure.
