A centerline mounted overbalanced multiple main jet engine configuration. The multiple jet engines are centerline mounted rather than parallel offset. While each jet engine is a “main” engine, capable of safely operating the aircraft in the event of a failure of the other engines, the engines are overbalanced in the sense that at least one of the main engines has substantially greater thrust than the other main engines. All of the main engines operate at critical periods of flight, but only one or the other of the main engines operates at other periods. ...
1. A twin-engine jet aircraft configuration, comprising:(a) an airframe having a centerline along its longitudinal axis; (b) a first jet engine mounted within a plane vertical to the centerline; (c) a second jet engine mounted within said plane vertical to the centerline; (d) each of said first and second jet engines having a thrust adequate to takeoff, climb, cruise and land the aircraft at full gross weight without use of the other jet engine; (e) one of said first and second jet engines having a maximum thrust greater than the maximum thrust of the ot...
