Loadmaster II

The Loadmaster II was one of a series of aircraft designed by Vincent Burnelli. The fuselage was designed as an airfoil allowing the cargo hold to be 20 feet wide, the two engine nacelles are actually mounted to the fuselage instead of on the wings. The plane showed a lot of promise as a heavy cargo plane but despite much promotion, the builder Canadian Car and Foundry did not receive any orders. 
The plane is now being restored  at the New England Air Museum in Connecticut.
