History

Engineers at C7 Aerospace were looking for a way to make a VTOL multirole aircraft for the space program. They put together all that they learned from previous designs but one puzzle piece was missing: how to put VTOL engines without generating too much drag in flight ? The answer came from the janitor who found some old junos inside a trash can by the side of the road. With just a couple of doors made in the trash c… hem the service bay, that would become the central part of a revolutionary aircraft. The engines are like new the engineers assure us.
