Burke BU-3 Aluminium Goose V2

Auto Credit Based on BurkeEnterprise's Burke BU-3 Aluminium Goose v1

Hello, after a break i decided to go back and work on the BU-3, it looks and flies much better now!

SILVER CELEBRATION BUILD!!!!
The BU-3 is an updated and more modern version of the spruce goose made by BurkeEnterprise after nasa couldn't get thier hands on the AN-225 to transport rocket parts. Although they where unimpressed with the old fashioned design at first, they soon realized the rugged fusionprop engines and turbo cooler made this the ultimate long range transporter
Controls: AG-8 and trim for engine lift. Trim centered and AG-8 off after takeoff

    Very nice plane! The tiling engines are an interesting addition.

    (I am also amused at how similar in size, configuration, and even paint scheme my own take at a flying boat is to this.)

    @JackTheBestBoss the engines lift up with trim to assist takeoff. AG8 turns it off.
