A single PW600 engine on a one-man stealth glider, designed to glide under radar, weighing under 2000lbs before fuel. Engine is used for takeoff, and then shuts down and is covered with a hatch after wards to reduce drag until it is needed to produce additional lift or to take off again once landed.


I know nothing about airplanes, just physics and wikipedia, but I have seen Escape from New York, and that "nuclear glider" was awesome.
