Seemed like a good idea...

 Known as the Vater und Sohn ( father and son) This awkward-looking combination of a DFS 230 glider powered with an attached BF109 was tested in 1943 and apparently worked quite well. The combination could be controlled using either the glider or the 109 controls or with both. Takeoffs and landings went perfectly. The only real issues apparently were when the 109 tried to release in flight, the glider pitched upwards, hitting the fighter plane.
