/ Fokker D.XXIII
The Fokker D.XXIII was designed as a twin-engine single-seat aircraft.
To overcome the problems of asymmetric flight it had a tractor engine at the front and a pusher engine at the rear.
The D.XXIII was a cantilever monoplane with the twin tail units on booms.
The pilot had an enclosed cockpit in between the tractor and pusher engines and it had a retractable tricycle landing gear.
Only one aircraft built.
