    1954 Horton Wingless aircraft - GIF

    1954 Horton Wingless aircraft invented by William Horton of California. To secure funding for his project, Horton partnered with Howard Hughes. However, the partnership fell apart because Hughes wanted to take all the credit for the patents and production rights.
