The Flying Pancake.

Designed by Charles H. Zimmerman in the 1930's; this rather weird looking aircraft was designed to be a fighter aircraft. Design problems led to the cancellation of the project. The sole Flying Pancake, or Flying Flapjack, was fortunately preserved; and is currently undergoing restoration to be put on display. For related development; see XF5U-1.
