Addition 2004 (-2016) to the list of Asymmetric aircraft
    Nov. 18th 2004 - Apr. 23rd 2017, by X.Toff/Tophe

  [My friend Igor, of Unicraft Models, must give of course a full priority to producing and sending kits, creating new ones, so he needed help to update his great Asymmetric-planes main site with 2003 additions of mine. As I am not a professional, just an enthusiast ignoring how to handle Copyrights, I give here just reduced or simplified pictures, inviting the interested people to find the very source. As well, I have not required any payment, nor a free kit - I am willing to pay Unicraft kits at catalogue price, they deserve it.]

1/ Engine test beds
2/ Rotor-craft
3/ Flying Toys
4/ (What-if dreams)
5/ (Toff-Tophe What-if dreams)
6/ high-speed asymmetry
7/ asymmetric ailiners
8/ slight asymmetry
9/ (unsure asymmetry)
10/ asymmetric lifting-body
11/ simple asymmetry
12/ temporary asymmetry

1/ Engine test beds
1a- A Gulfstream II twin-jet having a single propfan on the port wing had been built by Lockheed for the NASA, to test this engine/propeller. On the starboard wing was just a balance boom at the tip. The first flight occured in 1987. (Sources: Jane's All the World Aircraft, 'Lockheed Aircraft' Pub.Putnam)
1b- Many aircraft have been used to test in flight one new engine on one side while keeping reliable power on the other side, providing some asymmetry. Still to test the UnDuctedFan in the 1980s, a propfan was on one side of the tail (with normal jet on the other side) on a Boeing 727, a McDonnell MD-80, a Yakovlev Yak-42; a long time before that, a Boeing 707 used 3 turbojets and the first turbofan, bigger and shorter; and more recently, a Boeing 747 used 3 normal turbofans and one with huge fan; etc... (Source: Internet, Air & Cosmos and Aviation International magazines)

2/ Rotor-craft
2a- A very famous asymmetric aircraft was not an airplane: the Lockheed XH-51A Compound. In order to increase very much the speed of helicopters, it was tried to add a single big turbojet laterally on a classical XH-51 (with the rotor, a classical additional dorsal jet was not possible). The first flight occured in 1964, and the World speed record for rotorcraft was established at 272mph =438km/h. The Kaman Seasprite Compound used, also in 1964 the same principle: a starboard jet. (Sources: Internet, 'Lockheed Aircrat' Pub.Putnam, Jane's All the World Aircraft)
2b- Of course, most of the rotorcraft are slightly asymmetric, using a single rotor rotating clockwise (or else: counter-clockwise) with an anti-torque system at the rear, on one side, pushing in a lateral direction for balance. But this is not the subject here, as well as the vertical asymmetry or front/aft asymmetry of almost all aircraft. Though, the old Hellesen-Kahn hélicoptère /double-plane illustrates with huge asymmetry the principle of usual rotorcraft... First (unsuccessful) flight in 1925. (Source: 'Le Trait d'Union' magazine, BFAB Pub.)
2c- A striking asymmetry was used on the Fairey Gyrodyne, replacing the rear anti-torque system by a lateral propeller providing both anti-torque balance and speed increase. The first flight occured in 1947, and the program was cancelled after the crash of the prototype in 1949. Less known, the SIAI-Marchetti SV-20C project would have used the Gyrodyne principle with a pusher propeller, on the basis of the SV-20A helicopter - all was cancelled in 1974. (Sources: Internet, 'L'histoire de l'hélicoptère' Pub.France-Empire, Jane's All the World Aircraft)

3/ Flying Toys
3a- After the rotating wing, there is the domain of circular flight. Many flying toys, with line-control, have only a port wing and a starboard weight for balance, as the NASS A, 1/2A, F2A. (Source: Internet)

4/ More What-if
4a- Jacques Lecarme's DaU was a fool's-day joke (April 1st 1968) featuring a port fuselage and starboard push-pull engines. It was mentionned that an inverted version was available for left-handed pilots, just a little more expensive... (Source: Aviation Magazine)
4b- The Ki-624 has been presented as a war-bird having a starboard fuselage and port push-pull propellers. With it was presented the couple General Motors XF2M-A&B, with either port push-pull or starboard-push/port-pull. And the Mitsubishi D5M used the same principle. (Source: Internet).
4c- From Japan also, the Hanger EP-6 would have used the layout of the DaU, simplified, without pretending to some historical background. (Source: Internet)
4d (12a)- Maybe from Switzerland, the Superdahu would have been a supersonic interceptor designed for circular Mach-2 cruise over a little country. Funny... (Source: Internet)

5/ Toff-Tophe What-if
5a- I have drawn many what-if twin-boom asymmetrical planes of the 1940s (fantasy). I present 4 of them here, selected among 32... (Source: 'The end of Forked Ghosts' book by X.Toff)
5b-  In 1992, I already imagined crazy twin-boom asymmetric shapes, I present here 4 of these puzzles-for-taxonomists: twin-boom or not? (Source: 'Catamarans du Ciel' book by X.Toff)
5c- At last, I have created a whole site for the fantasy/logical analysis of the asymmetric layout, I present 4 of them here, selected among 45... (Source: 'Asymmetric-or-Twin-boom?' on Internet by X.Toff)

Maybe someone else will create another page, after me. Anyway, thanks again to Igor for his marvellous site and collection!

-------------------------------------------------------------------- LATE ADDITIONS -----------------------------------------------------

(2005/01/11th) 2c'/: Thanks to Alex Panchenko, whose incredible collection of Soviet project models is fully presented and commented at http://www.ussr-airspace.com , it is possible to add another poorly known derivative of the Gyrodyne, belonging to the Myasishchev M-12 batch of V/STOL transports.
(2005/06/22nd) 2d/ Other way : the Dornier Conrado Patent DE 44 43 731 of 1996 includes a completely new reason to be asymmetric: for a VTOL with tilting wing/propeller, the simplest way is to have the power and free space at the center of the aircraft, thus a twin-fuselage layout (port+starboard), BUT if it is impossible to have such two half-fuselages (e.g. to hold one very big device), a single fuselage is still required and it may be lateral, asymmetric (Fig.5 of this Patent), leaving free the central axis. With contra-rotating propellers/rotors, it was obvious that this Dornier layout was not justified by helicopter torque, this is a completely new reason to be asymmetric, congratulations to the inventor! (Source: Internet)
(2005/06/24th) 2e (12b)/ the Papin-Rouilly Gyroptère (tested in 1915) and other mono-blade choppers could be seen as asymmetric, stopped on the ground or in a flight snapshot. Thanks JCC for this addition. (Source: Internet)
(2005/09/24th) 6a/ Thanks to Scott Lowther, preparing a great new book (see at
http://www.up-ship.com/Book/bomproj.htm), it is possible to add a very serious Northrop asymmetric flying wing project, that came after the B-49. Asymmetry allowed the crew to be put as far from the nuclear reactor as possible. (+2007/01/06th:) The same is presented as project 1956 at http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/NorthropNuclear-PoweredFlyingWingCataloguePage.htm.
(2005/10/14th) 7a/ In 1966, the Douglas designers considered 3-engined airliners coded D-967, either classically symmetric with a jet in the fin (like the Boeing 727: D-967-10, or the DC-10: D-967-1) or else with an asymmetric layout: the most asymmetric was the D-967-20 having wing engines with the single starboard one more external than the 2 port ones; less asymmetric was the D-967-30 with rear engines, close to the centreline. Such a layout was leaving the fin and rudder free from any fire or explosion in case a major engine problem occurred, with better controls/safety than a classical 3-jet. (Source "Great airliners", 6)
(2006/02/12th) 4e/ For aviation enthusiasts regarding aircraft with smiles and tenderness, the asymmetric layout main quality is originality, weirdness, not mechanics or aerodynamics, and this point of view is further illustrated by several Bv 141 cute caricatures (like the ones in the lovely Web sites http://modelbox.free.fr/dossiers/Eggs_P/ and http://www.desinaero.fr.st/). A Lego square Bv 141 may also have been built in a child bedroom… Aircraft are not only serious useful machines, they are pleasant silhouettes and dreams also.
(2006/04/28th) 8a/ The Vickers Viking and Valetta, of the late 1940s, are mentioned as slightly asymmetric because their port tailplane is truncated to compensate a slipstream asymmetry, probably due to both engines rotating in the same direction instead of counter-rotating for balance.
(2006/06/01st) 4f/ On the X-plane.org Web-forum , "Foxbat" (Bret Danielson) presented several asymmetric-wing 3D weird models he had designed/virtually-built: Asymaplane, TwistWing. They seem able to fly!
(2006/06/02nd) 5d/ On What-if modellers Web-forums , Tophe (myself) presented one hundred fantasy asymmetric planes, from 1939-45 symmetric sources or discussing about the twin-boom definition. This stands as an update to the "Forked Ghosts" books, unReal part.
(2006/06/03rd) 6b/ Thanks (again) to Scott Lowther, preparing his new book (see at
http://www.up-ship.com/Book/bomproj.htm), here are 2 of the 5 Boeing designs for the USAF supersonic B-59 program of the early 1950s. A true twin-boom asymmetric layout, like featured here, is very rare, out of the fantasy world.
(2006/06/28th) 9a (12c)/ Some air-launched aircraft have flip-out wings, extended for flight, and photographs show them flying with asymmetrical outspread, as the IMI-Brunswick ADM-141A Tald, whose 141-code reminds strangely the asymmetric leader: Bv 141.
(2006/06/28th) 2e' (12b')/ Apart of the very-old or ultra-light single-blade helicopters were some modern-looking VTOL airplanes, as the delta-winged Sikorsky S-57 (XV-2, and maybe XH-36) of 1954.
(2006/08/24th) 7b/ The VFW 624 airliner project has been presented in 1973, in 4 versions: 2 symmetric triplex-engine and what seem to be 2 asymmetric twin-engine.
(2006/08/27th) 4g/ A fake photograph from Erfawn Akhtar-Khavari brought another nice addition to the asymmetric airliners family: Boeing 777-3m. While many computer graphic Masters added engines on the M.A.P. funny site (8-engined Boeing 747 etc.) the first step is adding only one, and if it is not central, that builds an asymmetric plane… There is no mention of the asymmetric originality, so it was probably presented as a normal 2-engined 777 turned into a weird 4-engined 777, while the angle allows to imagine the external port engine is hidden (by the internal port one), but as this one has never been handled/"built", this "photographed" plane is a 3-engined incredible 777, and dreamers may appreciate even more!
(2006/08/30th) 5e/ I have myself reached the Modified Airliner Photographs group, to add twin-airliners and asymmetric airliners. I put this Boeing 757-3e. It was fun to make with Corel PhotoPaint, I thank also Adrian Pingstone and Wikipedia for the souce picture.
(2007/01/17th) 4h/ Asymmetric cargo planes were presented in the fantasy Howdah design project. A challenge for balance but convenient to upload/download...
(2007/01/31st) 4i/ A Web designer named Cutangus also imagined asymmetric planes of the late 1940s.
(2007/02/01st) 3b/ At the International Haud-Launch Glider Festival (IHLGF, 2003?) was presented an asymmetric-wing glider made by Bill Watson, flown successfuly with asymmetry in chord, span and dihedral.
(2007/03/04th) 5f/ I have created a Web site gathering almost 200 imaginary P-38 Lightnings, and 36 of them are strongly asymmetric...
(2007/04/13th) 10a/ A 1974 Boeing "Transport Concept" would have used the Burnelli lifting body principle, with a port cockpit and starboard jet.
(2007/10/28th) 5g/ I have created a Web site gathering my fake photos of aircraft, half of them being asymmetric jokes.
(2008/03/18th) 4j/ In January 1945, Roger Tennant explained in the magazine Flight that the best long range fighter would be an asymmetric twin-engine plane.
(2008/03/21st) 3c/ An asymmetrical control-line toy, reaching 150mph (240km/h), was already presented in 1949 in the magazine Flight.
(2008/03/22nd) 11a/ The Patent US 1,896,270 ("Airplane") filed in September 1929 by Theodore P. Wright (later engineer of the Curtiss-Wright Co.) presents a single-engine aircraft with good visibility, reduced fuselage vibration and reduced crash hazards. See Google patent or Flight magazine.
(2008/03/22nd) 5h/ I add here a (fake) Blohm und Voss Bv 141C with pilot and engine inverted: the goal would have been the ability to repair in flight the engine...
(2008/03/23rd) 5i/ I add also a (fake) Blohm und Voss Bv 141Z-2 with long range improvements in a Zwilling way: 2 fuselages and 1 half-pod for fuel, front observer as well as rear observer in a special pod, free from the pilot cockpit...
(2008/03/24th) 5j/ With gunners and lateral observers, the (fantasy) Blohm und Voss Bv 141Z-3 may have been rejected by very bad officials in 1944, it may be built anyway by very good modellers in 2014...
(2008/04/19th) 2f/ The Young Patent US3,820,743 of 1972 presented a Maple Seed Aerospace craft, VTOL with spinning flight... See Google Patent
(2008/04/19th) 4k/ A fool's day joke (April 1st 1980) was the Monoptère. (Source: Aviation Magazine)
(2008/04/19th+24th) 7c/ In 1971 was proposed an asymmetric 3-engined version of the Preliminary Boeing 747SP. Source: "Boeing 747" by Martin Bowman.
(2008/06/16th) 5k/ Coming back on the What-if modellers Web-forum, Tophe (myself) presented new fantasy asymmetric planes, from 1939-45 symmetric sources. This stands as another update to the "Forked Ghosts" books, unReal part (including the asymmetric Messerschmitt Me 610 and Me 710 together with the twin-fuselage Me 810 and twin-boom Me 910).
(2008/06/16th) 5l/ I have also created a Web site gathering my new fake photos of aircraft, half of them being asymmetric jokes.
(2008/10/03rd) 9b/ In the book " Illyustrirovannaya entsiklopediya samolyotov (OKB) V. M. Myasishcheva" by Bruk/Udalov/Smirnov/Arkhipov/Pogodin/Puntus, appeared a mysterious drawing of what seems to be an asymmetric variant of the Myasishchev M-63-2 Katamaran project – or this may be a mistake of the artist, not an external starboard foreplane nor a frontal starboard fin…
(2008/10/04th) 4l/ My friend Koen invented and justified a personal design for an asymmetric flying wing. See his Nest of dragons.
(2008/10/04th) 7d/ Jim Davis wrote that the preliminary Boeing 727 was designed as asymmetric, but refused by airlines as the public would not like that.
(2008/10/04th) 6c (12d)/ The Northrop-Grumman/DARPA Oblique Flying Wing (OFW) is a supersonic project, with a 2006 contract for a first flight 2010. See Flightglobal.
(2008/10/14th) 3d/ The Inter-Ex annual show (1984-2007) organised a classification for flying models, including an asymmetric group. There was a Blakert Bv 141B in 2001, and the drawing for the group is uncommon.
(2008/10/14th) 3e/ In 1997 the Academy of Model Aeronautics was selling an asymmetric version of a flying jet model, see Ironside.
(2008/10/18th) 6d/ Many more oblique wing projects (asymmetric airliners and fighters, twin-pod flying wings, etc.) are here and there, or on Desktop Aeronautics pages.
(2008/10/31st) 4m/ At least 2 asymmetric planes seem to appear in the computer game Crimson Skies: the Doppleganger besides and a twin-prop aircraft.
(2008/11/08th) 5m/ Differently asymmetric, the twin-engine flying-wing Blohm und Voss Bv 141N Nurflügel and the twin-tail Bv 141M have been designed (by myself) in 2008.





(2008/11/08th) 5n/ The (2008-"designed") Blohm und Voss Bv 141D could have been a reco aircraft with much improved lateral view.
(2008/11/09th) 3f (12e)/ The Pilotomago Web film seems to feature a radio-controlled plane flying with a half wing (the other half being lost in flight), before great fake effects to connect to a (safe, saved) piloted airplane.
(2008/11/24th) 12f/ Some composite aircraft hold lateral little airplanes, that may detach separately, the first that goes away leaving behind a (temporary) asymmetric composite. That started in the 1930s with the Zveno composites then went on in the 1950s with the Tom-Tom ones.




(2008/11/30th) 5o/ Zwilling the usual Bv-141N and the rare Bv-141И (2008, for left-handed crew) could have produced a sadly-symmetric double-pod twinboomer. But, if ever one engine fails, a dangerous asymmetry would result, so the port engine was moved backward and the booms were brought near each other, with a piece of external tailplane for balance, the result being still asymmetric (Bv-141NИ or Bv-141Nee).




(2008/12/06th) 1c/ In 1956, the Canadair CL-52/B-47B was a flying test-bed for the Iroquois jet, it featured an asymmetric engine pod underneath the starboard tailplane.
(2008/12/07th) 5p/ 1948 (or 2008?) designed Bv-141T Tourismus for 12 passengers enjoying the landscape.
(2009/02/23rd) 5q/ As the count of Bv-141 twin-boomers in the what-if-modellers group raised to 4, I added one of my own: the Bv 141Neu-Neu (meaning New-New in English, meaning Brainless-Stupid in French). Such a design would have a precise technical goal for the designer-hero: being fired away from the design bureau, to design no Nazi aircraft anymore...
(2009/03/01st-02nd) 4n (6e)/ The challenge to imagine a supersonic Bv-141 leaded to design an asymmetric version of the F-16A: F-141A. Tophe drew a first sketch, then nicely corrected and improved by ElectrikBlue, that featured it as 3D model using parts from Logic-Wizard's original F-16 model data.
(2009/04/11th + 2009/05/24th) 4o/ An old cartoon invented by by Chris Wren showed a reverted Bv-141, canard somehow (see The Aeroplane June 2009).
(2009/04/17th) 4p/ A 1/72 model at the IPMS Octoberfest 2007 seemed to have featured an asymmetric F4U Corsair (or F4U/P-51B hybrid, or Crimson Skies' Doppleganger turned plastic).
(2009/04/19th) 5r/ In my collection of plastic/resin models, more than a dozen of asymmetric aircraft inventions are featured.
(2009/04/20th) 4q (6f)/ After presenting his 8-engined what-if project RF-52 Condor, the great (amateurish) designer ElectrikBlue was invited by Tophe to turn it into a 4-engined asymmetric plane. This gave life to the Boeing RF-55B Condor, a kind of hypersonic Bv-141… Thanks EB/José!
(2009/05/03rd) 8b/ A McDonnell Douglas Patent of 1996 for Aerodynamic body having coplanar joined wings includes an asymmetric fuselage layout.
(2009/05/04th) 10b/ In 1976, Boeing Spanloader concepts were presented. Some of them, with 5 or 7 jet engines, were asymmetric, the nose and cockpit being lateral.
(2009/05/13th) 12g/ In 2007 was presented the RoboSwift bird observation VG airplane, turning by sweeping asymmetrically its wings.
(2009/05/13th) 5s/ The Gloster Meteor III.4 would have been an asymmetric version, joining a half Mk.III and a half Mk.4, to have asymmetry both in wing shape and jet size.
(2009/05/14th) 4r/ From Unicraft kits, the what-if modeller Flitzer invented in 2008 this asymmetric derivative of the Hs P.122 : Henschel Hs Schief.
(2009/05/17th) 5t/ The unmanned Bv-141RC is still asymmetric, even without lateral pod.
(2009/05/19th) 5u/ From ElectrikBlue's imaginative Mig-70 (with 2 turbojets + 1 ramjet) was created the MiG-77M with uncommon asymmetry of jet-nozzles and fins.
(2009/05/20th) 5v/ The twin-engined Bv-141zm zweimotorig has less asymmetry in weight, more asymmetry in thrust.
(2009/05/21st) 5w/ The F-104 Asy would feature simply dihedral asymmetry.
(2009/05/22nd) 9c/ The CWA Swan project has been presented with a radial engine only on the port wing. However the text (of The Aeroplane Spotter 9/7/1944) explained that the two 205hp in-line engines could be replaced by two 450hp radials, the sketch mixing both without such a construction being considered, it seems.
(2009/07/08th) 2g/ In 1965, the Lockheed CL-945 VTOL project featured a stowed rotor – becoming almost a classical airplane in cruise flight, while keeping a helicopter anti-torque device, uselessly asymmetric then…
(2009/07/08th) 5x/ A twin-boom flying disc was featured on a "Man's life" cover, presented in a Web forum and Weaver suggested that Tophe turned it asymmetric. So the port engine was discarded with Photopaint-6.
(2009/07/29th) 12h/ A Junkers Ju 88 was partly broken in flight, in 1941, and kept on flying 160km (100 miles), asymmetrically, without starboard taiplane. (See "Le Fana de l'Aviation" #477, Editions Larivière).
(2009/08/12th) 8c/ The Henschel Hs 298, in 1945, would have been an air-to-air missile (rocket-powered), with a little asymmetry. (See "Die detschen Flugzeuge 1933-1945", Lehmanns Verlag, 1964).
(2009/08/13th) 9d/ When only a profile is available, several layout hypothesis may be considered. In the book "Ceskoslovenska letadla" (Nase Vojsko, 1968) is a Czech text, that was uneasy to read, so the LE P-3.4 (project of 1949) might have been asymmetrical or twin-fuselage. At last, with Internet free translators, the twin-fuselage hypothesis appeared being the true one for this fighter-trainer, the asymmetry having just been a reader's dream...
(2009/08/18th) 10c/ The Roberts Wing body aircraft (Patent US3191883 of 1964-65) featured two fins, asymmetrical both in position and direction.
(2009/08/19th) 11b/ The Raymer Asymmetric GA Twin was an interesting design (dated 1981?) but has never been built it seems.
(2009/08/23rd) 12i/ The Supermarine 327 Spito prototype of 1937, not finished, was completely asymmetric, but unable to fly (and even to stand on the runway)...
(2009/08/24th) 4s/ The Science-Fiction B-wing Starfighter would have been a winged asymmetric space-craft, probably able to fly as airplane in some atmosphere.
(2009/08/25th) 7e/ The Roskam Asymmetric Trijet was an RC model of airliner.
(2009/08/26th) 5y/ The Blohm und Voss Bv-141E Ei (Egg) featured lengths reduced by 50% (as basis for an egg-plane model kit).
(2009/08/27th) 6g/ The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Staggerwing in 1977 improved transsonic drag with wing asymmetry (Patent US4,139,172).
(2009/09/05th) 8d/ The helicopter Boeing-Vertol 235 AAH, built as mock-up in 1973 had asymmetric cockpits and windscreens.
(2009/09/19th) 4t/ In 2008, an asymmetric Arado Ar-240 A-02 Asy was built by Jérôme Engel at scale 1/72.
(2009/09/20th) 3f/ The Paper Airplane Design Studio presented several Japanese asymmetric models in 2006.
(2009/09/20th) 3g/ In 2009, the Ninomiya machine with staggered planes was another Japanese paper plane.
(2009/09/20th) 3h/ An asymmetrical wing wooden plane was also built in Japan.
(2009/09/21st) 12j/ In 2009, a Rockwell Collins Damage Tolerance scale model of F-18 had part of its starboard wing removed in flight, while keeping control thanks to special electronics.
(2009/09/24th) 12k/ In 1996, the F-16HSR High Speed Research of the NASA featured temporarily a half wing with an experimental glove changing its shape.
(2009/09/24th) 3i/ Chinese paper planes featured staggered wings or starboard-only fin.
(2009/09/24th) 11c/ In June 2009 flew the XFC pusher unmanned aircraft of The US Naval Research Laboratory, with oblique wings and opposite winglets.
 
 
(2009/09/26th) 9e/ Sometimes, in an article, two half planes are compared, close to one another. Visually, this creates a kind of asymmetric airplane - like this (these) Dassault project(s) of mid-September 1956 in "Le Trait d'Union" #179.
(2009/09/27th) 9f/ Sometimes, the asymmetric aircraft that we guess is a temporary visual illusion, due to the angle of sight, making a 3-fuselage single-tail plane look like having only 2 lateral fuselages: one with tail and one without - then the plane would move and we would see there was just some alignment of the tail-carrying central-fuselage with one of the lateral fuselages.
(2009/10/07th) 5z/ Rarely, a profile of twin-engine airplane is presented with one lateral engine removed to show the short nose that it would hide. So there is the nose in front then a lateral engine, which looks like an asymmetric single-engine plane. It is possible from there to invent the other views. The single-engined Bristol Beaufighter came this way from pleasant profiles in the book "Interceptor fighters for the Royal Air Force" by M.Bowyer.
(2009/10/08th) 5za/ After the Blohm und Voss Bv-241B project (would have) created a symmetric Zwilling derivative of the Bv-141, the Bv-341B restored asymmetry, in a triplex pod layout.
(2009/10/11th) 5zb/ Of course the Blohm und Voss Bv-241B and Bv-341B have been themselves Zwillinged into the asymmetric Bv-241Z and Bv-341Z.
(2009/10/12th) 4u/ In 2009, the what-if designer Electrik Blue invented a MiG-29Z Zwilling, with a secret device in the front part of the starboard fuselage. The what-if modeller Tophe prevented interference with the starboard foreplane discarding this one (and the port tailplane for balance), into an asymmetric MiG-29Z-2.
(2009/10/13th) 9g/ Sometimes, another visual illusion may come from twin-boomers with separate tails and the central pod hides one of the booms, making the observer wonder: twin-boom symmetric or single-boom asymmetric? See the Pellarini Airjeep.
(2009/10/17th) 5zc/ Between the Bv-441 (Bv-241Z) and Bv-641 (Bv-341Z) was the Blohm und Voss Bv-541. This 5-engined reco aircraft was designed to carry a lot of fuel, for transatlantic flight back and forth without refueling.
(2009/10/18th) 5zd/ The Blohm und Voss Bv-741 (would have) avoided the need of rear protection by an increased speed: doubled power with no more drag.
(2009/10/18th) 5ze/ With the threat of jet fighters, 1944, were (or would have been) designed the 4-engined Bv-841 and 6-engined Bv-941, reaching (theoretically) 800km/h = 500mph.
(2009/11/03rd) 4v/ From the famous 2-engined RF-101 Voodoo, José ElectrikBlue invented the 4-engined RF-202 Zwilloo (Zwilling-Voodoo) and suggested that Tophe remove one fuselage. That created the 3-engined asymmetric RF-202R, half Northropish flying wing...
(2009/11/08th) 5zf/ Before designing the P.178 asymmetric jet, the Blohm und Voss team of course considered a Bv-141TL (jet derivative of the Bv-141).
(2009/12/08th) 6h/ In 2008, a thesis by R.W. Plumley at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute included a CGI drawing of Staggered Multi-Body aircraft, looking supersonic.
(2009/12/16th) 4v/ In 2006, the what-if modeller Rafael revealed the Yakovlev Yak-480, an airplane "built in 2013" from an old Messerschmitt Bf-109 and 2 turboprops... with high success!
(2009/12/16th) 4w/ In "1943" (according to the fantasy artist Stan Mott), maybe in 1957 in our world, Igor Sokerov's Chrysler Aeroflot carplane featured a port rear door and a starboard tail, it seems.
(2009/12/19th) 4x/ The what-if designer ElectrikBlue has created the Dassault Farfadet, a 66% scale Rafale (except cockpit and canopy: of course 100%), then the group Rafale+Farfadet gave birth to the Rafafale twin-plane, asymmetric.
(2009/12/20th) 4y/ The what-if designers ElectrikBlue and Stargazer2006 had fun creating the little Mirage 1000 from the big Mirage 4000, then Stargazer invented the Mirage 1000A with a F-16-like jet intake, requiring Tophe to build an asymmetric derivative of it. So, the asymmetric double Mirage 1001 featured both kinds of jet intakes, each one having good points and bad points.
(2009/12/23rd) 4z/ The what-if modeller Glenn dreaming of a Britten-Norman Twin-Islander, Tophe imagined several asymmetric versions of this Twislander.
(2010/01/17th) 5zg/ In X.Toff's book "Virtual Mustangs", many profiles have been mentioned as corresponding to either symmetric aircraft or asymmetric ones. This possibility has been illustrated with the P-51/3m or P-51/2m (with anti-torque little extra engine) on the update pages (what-if modellers forum).
(2010/01/18th) 11d/ The Cirrus The-Jet (future Vision SF50) single-jet design was considered in many ways: « even one with an engine mounted on the side, but un-surprisingly, it looked too un-conventional and who wants an asymmetric airplane anyway ? »…
(2010/01/30th) 5zh/ From the Mirage 1000 nice fake, and the source Mirage 4000, was created the Mirage 4001 asymmetric big & small...
(2010/01/31st) 4za/ The what-if designer ElectrikBlue created a 4-jet engined F7F Tigercat Jumojet, then 3-engined variants, including an asymmetric one.
(2010/02/07th) 5zi/ The what-if designer Wyrmshadow created a 3-engined Warhound mixing the Blohm und Voss P.170 layout (3-engined, double-fin, twin-lateral-booms) with Curtiss P-40 Warhawk parts. From this Tophe made a Warhound 2, 2-engined single-fin single-lateral-boom asymmetric derivative.
(2010/02/08th) 5zj/ When Unicraft Models presented the profile of a "Me 110" (future kit) looking like a Bf 109 with lateral engine, most visitors concluded this was a 3-engined plane, while Tophe imagined there was a single main engine, and a single extra little engine acting as anti-torque, asymmetrically. This turned wrong but was funny.
(2010/02/12th) 4zb/ In 2008, the what-if modeller/designer DaFrog invented a 'serious' asymmetric derivative of the Harrow, much improved in 1939: the Handley-Page HP-54A.
(2010/02/16th) 11e/ In the 1/72 kit of Blohm und Voss P.178 02 02 is an industrial plan including a version with piston radial engine. According to Renaud Mangallon, this could be for a safe preliminary prototype.
(2010/02/21st) 5zk/ From a weird MiG-29 Delta invented by the what-if designer JP Vieira, Tophe imagined a single-engined asymmetric MiG-29 Diamond in 2008.
(2010/02/22nd) 5zl/ On a site about the half-million definitions of the French word for "twin-boom" ("bipoutre"), Tophe presented many asymmetric special principles.
(2010/02/25th) 4zc/ Google found on a X-plane forum a thumbnail of asymmetric twin-tractor airplane. It seems military from a dreamy country.
(2010/03/06th) 3j/ The staggered wing airplane-toy Tempaku-Picasso has been designed by Toshio Ohashi in 2009.
(2010/03/06th) 3k/ The N-2264 is also a Japanese toy, commercially sold so this is a mass-produced airplane somehow...
(2010/03/06th) 8e/ For a Japanese birdman contest in 2007, a slightly asymmetric glider of 24.6 meters span (80 ft) has been designed: port cockpit, starboard boom.
(2010/03/06th) 5zm/ A search on the Web found no “asymmetric glider”, no “asymmetric sailplane”, so… here is the first one maybe: for panoramic view enjoyment of two passengers, the Rolladen Schneider LS 6y was designed (from LS 6b source)
(2010/03/07th) 5zn/ Of course, the first asymmetric glider would have been the unpowered version of the main asymmetric airplane: Bv-141S Segelfluzeuge.
(2010/03/10th) 12l/ The Boeing 724 (and North American competitor) projects of 1956 featured external winged tanks. If one is jettisoned before the other, the aircraft is temporarily asymmetric.
(2010/03/14th) 4zd/ Creating an amphibian version of the Blohm und Voss P.111, the asymmetric modeller PR19_Kit faced problems with the wheel of the float side. On a P.111L Landflugzeuge without float, this would have been easier to handle, while creating the first asymmetric spats ever, maybe.
(2010/03/14th) 1d/ In 1970, a 4-engined symmetric Vickers VC-10 was transformed as 3-engined asymmetric test-bed for the Rolls-Royce RB211 turbofan.
(2010/03/14th) 5zo/ From the slightly asymmetric Rutan Ares may be built a very asymmetric Ares-2.
(2010/03/16th) 4ze (6i)/ From the Northrop P-530 Cobra, the what-if designer Stargazer2006 created the (symmetric triplex-fuselage) P-1200 Hydra, and from it: the asymmetric twin-fuselage P-1260 Hyena. With the General Dynamics F-141A, this could have made a weird competition.
(2010/03/23rd) 6e/ In 2009, the modeller Ludo turned into a plastic scale model the asymmetric prototype of Airbus A340 testing one single and huge turbofan of A380.
(2010/03/27th) 5zp/ A search on the Web found no "dissymmetrical aircraft", the word "dissymmetrical flight" being used mainly for symmetrical aircraft, even if an asymmetric plane may fly dissymmetrically also – this is the same for "dissymmetrical profile", "dissymmetrical training".
(2010/03/27th) 5zq/ From the real project of fixed-wing Grumman F-14 Tomcat, Tophe has invented the F-14½ TomAsyCat, first half-VG airplane it seems.
(2010/03/28th) 5zr/ There are several steps between fully asymmetrical and fully symmetrical, as below between the single-engine Savoia SM.92/1m and the twin-cockpit SM.92/2c.
(2010/03/29th) 5zs/ It seems no "asymmetric Lego aircraft" had ever been built, so this Lego-141 may be the first one (built from a symmetric twin-boom pusher: Reporter aircraft 6341).
(2010/03/31st) 12m/ The 5-engined Boeing 747 could have been a good "asymmetric airliner" design, even if it was only a symmetric 4-engined plane rarely transporting a 5th engine, not working.
(2010/04/04th) 5zt/ A Web search about “unsymmetric aircraft” revealed no new asymmetric one, just some basis for inventing new ones, like this Asymmetric dihedral plane.
(2010/04/05th) 5zu/ What-if modelers can use a 1/72 Bv-141 kit to imagine what would have been a 1/144 Blohm und Voss P.141 (asymmetric passenger aircraft, according to historians, without picture yet).
(2010/05/04th) 2h/ The Weir W-7 project has been in 1946 the basis for the Cierva Gyrodyne concept.
(2010/06/25th) 12n/ The Grumman XP-50 mock-up, not finished in 1940, standed like an asymmetric weird aircraft.
(2010/07/11th) 5zv/ A mysterious profile of Armstrong Whitworth F.11/37 project of 1937, leaded to an asymmetric-single-engine hypothesis, before extra data restored sadness (somehow)... Fortunately, a fake drawing made the dream "survive".
(2010/07/29th) 5zw (12o)/ During the what-if process of turning a swept wing into a forward swept wing, an intermediate step is strongly asymmetric, like on this Curtiss XP-55AS Asymmetriker.
(2010/08/23rd) 5zx (9h)/ The Santangelo Guidonia I was presented with a very asymmetric profile. Alas this was just schematic, and to match, the other wiews “had to” be corrected…
(2010/09/06th) 12p/ Conversion kits, like the Northrop N9M jet (Sharkit 1/72), feature sometimes an asymmetric temporary layout, for the step of half conversion.
(2010/09/10th) 12q/ The Vogt's Composite aircraft patent US3161373, filed in early 1949 but issued only in late 1964, featured a layout with temporary asymmetry for the best turning in coupled flight.
(2010/09/11th) 9i/ Sometimes, the only view is truncated, like for the Convair Nuclear Freighter, and "honestly" the asymmetric hypothesis stands as very possible.
(2010/09/22th) 5zy/ When a 4-engine version is presented close to a 2-engine version, it is funny to join them into an asymmetric 3-engine dream, like for this Avro 691.
(2010/09/25th) 12r/ Folding one half wing before the other creates an asymmetric airplane, not flying, like on these drawings of the Noeggerath Patent DE558305 of 1927/1932...
(2010/09/26th) 11f/ Symmetric and asymmetric layouts have been considered in the Entwistle Patent GB562109 of 1943/1944.
(2010/09/26th) 12s/ While every airplane uses asymmetry in flaps braking to rotate, it is far less common to use asymmetry in foreplanes dihedral for maneuvers, like the Boeing Patent US4542862 of 1983/1985.
(2010/09/26th) 12t/ The Williams-Host Patent GB982898 of 1961/1965 associated VG wings for speed/handling and adjustable tail for turning.
(2010/09/27th) 2i/ The Pennine Patent GB663206 of 1949/1951 featured 4 intermeshing rotors. One side of the rectangle is used as fuselage for passengers.
(2010/10/03rd) 9j/ The Bréguet 710 (project of 1935) was presented (in the Trait d'Union magazine, 1997) as a 3-engine airliner while the profile showed 2 engines on the port wing. This could be either an asymmetric layout or a 4-engined derivative without words to say it.
(2010/10/07th) 4zf (2j)/ Stéphane Stargazer2006 presented a helicopter profile with no antitorque device, for no obvious reason. After smiling discussion, he admitted his Bell 828 second prototype was a single-jet asymmetric aircraft.
(2010/10/08th) 4zg/ Science-fiction is a dream Universe, where asymmetry brings a touch of fantasy, like for this group of Kushan spacecraft.
(2010/10/09th) 4zh/ José F. ElectrikBlue did create a wonderful asymmetrical unmanned craft ("Asymetric UCAV"), without requirement specially for it, just because this is weird and pleasant, apart of possible technical reasons for such a layout.
(2010/10/17th) 9k/ An article about asymmetric flight did not mention turbojet on port side, turboprop on starboard, but the drawings seem to show this asymmetry.
(2010/10/17th) 4zi/ A 3-D model of Focke-Wulf Fw-190 asymmetric derivative has been created by Foxbat (Bret Danielson) in 2006, with a free nose.
(2010/10/24th) 5zz/ The Mc Donnell XP-67Z Twin-Moonbat would have featured a unique layout to prevent intermeshing propellers: asymmetric push-pull as 3 pull and 1 push.
(2010/11/02nd) 4zj/ Stargazer2006 has transformed the De Havilland DH-88 Comet into a very beautiful push-pull, elegantly asymmetric.
(2010/11/02nd) 12u/ The Nattinger Patent US7252264 of 2005 featured a Flying Sailboat which may raise one wing opposite to the wind when not flying in the air.
(2010/11/03rd) 12v/ The Amick Patent US3987982 of 1974 featured a Wind-Powered Flying-Boat with also a strong standing asymmetry while not flying in the air.
(2010/11/13th) 4zk/ In 2008, GTX invented a different asymmetric Fw-190, the Blohm und Voss Bv-190D-13.
(2010/11/27th) 1e/ In 1966, an Antonov An-12 was used as test-bed in Egypt fot the Brandner HA 300 turbojet, replacing one of the 4 turboprops.
(2010/11/27th) 5zza/ The old prototype of Bv 141 with a symmetric tailplane could also have been the basis for an asymmetric twin-boomer.
(2010/12/03rd) 4zl/ In 2010, the what-if modeller ElectrikBlue imagined a different twin-boom Bv-141 (Bv-141EB), with one forward canopy and another canopy in aft position.

(2010/12/10th) 5zzc/ The what-if modeller Tophe added many Bv-141EB variants, twin-boom with one forward canopy and another canopy in aft position.
(2010/12/17th) 11g/ In 1956-57, the Convair Model 24 XP6Y-1 has been illustrated by a weird artist's illustration, featuring an asymmetrical arrangement. The authors of the genius book "Convair advanced designs" said 'the motivation for this configuration is not known', while I guess this is to reduce drag and weight, removing the second auxiliary float of a normal flying boat design without the weight of retractable floats. This may have been the second asymmetric flying boat in History after the Blohm und Voss P.111 - both unbuilt.
(2010/12/17th) 4zm (12w)/ In late 2010, the what-if modeller/designer Saintkatanalegacy presented the MiG-47-2 Sariil/Arkhangel'sk mother-plane transporting 16 unmanned aircraft, with a very asymmetric look. But she explained the aircraft base is symmetric, just the UCAVs are there temporarily docked on the starboard wing and released on the port wing.
(2010/12/22nd) 4zn/ To enrich Tophe's collection of asymmetric twin-boomers, the what-if modeller/designer Saintkatanalegacy presented this "Prop" creation, maybe one of the most asymmetric aircraft ever designed...
(2010/12/23rd) 4zo/ In 2010 were sold on the Web cuff-links representing aircraft. Their use required extra parts other than the aircraft themselves, and that made like asymmetric aircraft as a whole.
(2010/12/23rd) 4zp/ In 2010 was presented on the Web an art-plane made of porcelain with the shape of a bottle and only a port wing, to embody artistic freedom.
(2011/01/03rd) 4zq/ In 2011, a very serious author did mention my Westand Singlewind model and improved it (according to his standards) with a military nose and fuselage engine.
(2011/01/03rd) 4zr/ In 2011, the what-if modeller Saintkatanalegacy (SKL) invented the idea of an asymmetric Ekranoplan. I don't know how stability can be achieved with asymmetric air-cushion(s) but asymmetry is very possible for engines and tailplanes.
(2011/01/03rd) 5zzd/ A triple air-cushion, very asymmetric could be imagined...
(2011/01/04th) 4zs/ SKL invented an asymmetric air-cushion, for her UPS Ekranoplane (for rapid transport of materials and mobile docking for smaller vessels).
(2011/01/11th) 11h/ In 2008-2010, the Jet Aerospace Askance Asymmetric Jet Project featured a single jet in a lateral position.

(2011/01/13th) 5zzf/ The Blohm-and-Paul Defiant Mk141 (with its 2 versions, left-side and right-side) may have been the best escort for the high-speed turret-less Lancaster Mk99.
(2011/01/15th) 4zu (2j, 9l)/ Sometimes, a truncated drawing is not clear enough to depart the hypothesis asymmetric and symmetric. This doubt creates an asymmetric-aircraft-hypothesis (here for anti-torque?), at least.
(2011/01/25th) 11i/ Between 1995 and 2010, to test and demonstrate the qualities of the winggrid system, an asymmetric model glider used it on one of its half-wings, to compare with the classical other half. Success.

(2011/01/26th) 5zzg/ Asymmetric Mirage : after the what-if modeller Slerski has invented the first Swedish twin-fin Mirage (Saab JAS 38 Fenrir), Tophe added an asymmetric version (JAS 38C), because one big fin like that is enough...
(2011/01/30th) 5zzh/ A triplex-rotor helicopter may be asymmetric. From the Mil Mi 32, symmetric but lacking rear view, I created the improved Mi 32A Asymmetrichnoy Vyertolyet much better somehow...
(2011/01/30th) 4zv/ The what-if modeller Stargazer2006 did present a mysterious profile with a long tail without tailplane: Ki-137. He answered to Tophe it was not a twin-fuselage with internal tailplane, so... it must have been an asymmetric plane, twin-engine for blalance. Probably fast but weird.
(2011/01/31st) 5zzi/ The Renessna 510 may be the very first "asymmetric flying car" ever. Joining the tiny French Renault 5 car, an American Cessna 310 air-engine, and a new wing, it has been flown and driven successfully, in my dreams.
(2011/02/05th) 5zzj/ With petroleum becoming rare, my dreamy project 7Nu7 could be the first nuclear airliner, with maximum distance between passengers and radioactive engines.

(2011/02/19th) 5zzk/ The first asymmetric paraplane may be a parent-and-child twin (here inspired by the Skydiving Cool Breeze).
(2011/02/26th) 5zzl/ The first asymmetric airship may have been the Aereon IIIA (derivative of the symmetric 3-hull Aereon III tested in 1965).
(2011/02/28th) 4zx/ In 2011, the what-if modeller Weaver invented the Fokker G.1 Asymmetrisch with a second useful free nose.

Photobucket
(2011/05/03rd) 5zzo/ The first asymmetric unmanned UAV may be the MQ-1Z Twin-Predator with 3 engines and heavy electronics.
Photobucket
(2011/05/18th) 5zzp/ I have made a what-if Mustang/Twin-Mustang site with the drawings I posted on a what-if modeller forum, to be discarded to make room for new topics. Included are several dozens of asymmetric ones.
Photobucket
(2011/05/21st) 5zzq/ I have made also a what-if twin-boom aircraft site with the drawings I posted on another what-if modeller topic, to be discarded as well. Included are several dozens of asymmetric ones.
Photobucket

(2011/10/21st) 7g/ In the Weisz Patent US2,479,655 of 1946/1949 for a "Separable aircraft for safe flying", a symmetric (biplane, 4-engined) twin-plane airliner can separate into two asymmetric (monoplane, 2-engined) single-planes, with safe move of passengers into the still-working half.
(2011/10/22nd) 12x/ The 1975 patent US3,881,671 of J. Bouchnik had on two figures an asymmetric layout. It seems this is a simplified sketch to show Variable Geometry at an intermediate step (“partial plan view”).

(2011/10/23rd) 4zzd/ In 2011 also, the computer designer Voidhawk9 proposed a 3D model of an old utility plane (EA CU-13 Adzebill) with a cabin on the starboard wingtip and asymmetry also on the fin located at the port tailplane tip. With its two fuselages at maximum distance, this plane would have been the very best to transport infectious patients, indeed.

(2011/12/31st) 5zzu/ It seems I have invented, with the Republic P-47Y Asymbolt, the very first asymmetric eggplane ever.

(2013/05/11th) 5zzzj/ "The source book of WWII aircraft" mentionned the Aachen FVA 13 as "high wing asymmetrical sailplane" while the 3-view drawing found on Internet does not confirm its asymmetry. So I had to invent a FVA 14-1 derivative....
(2013/08/30th) 5zzzk/ Playing with José Fernandes XP-69Z, I invented a new kind of aircraft asymmetry: on a push-pull 3-engined twin-pod twin-boomer...
(2013/09/23rd) 3m/ My son Jacky required me to fix the propeller of his airplane toy on the starboard wing... This asymmetrical Kingcobra (?) thus became the asymmetric airplane ordered by the youngest purchaser, somehow : 4 years old.
(2013/09/24th) 3n/ From a cartoon egg-plane of Disney Planes, I had created a cartoon P-82 Twin-Mustang, then I coloured it for my friend Ericr that loves bright colours, but he required me to change the colours, and doing so, I invented a new aircraft asymmetry : a cartoon Siamese-twin-aircraft with eyes of different colours!

(2014/01/25th) 5zzzw/ The Mini-Cube 141 was an asymetric airplane I made with my son's toys (maybe the first asymmetric "aircraft" ever built with Mini-Cubes, or the first to be displayed on the Web).

(2015/06/16th) 5zzzzg/ The first asymmetric COIN aircraft were the OV-01C Bronca and OV-01Z Twin-Bronca, in 1943, long before the OV-10 Bronco, or on another planet.

(2015/07/03rd) 5zzzzh/ Maybe the first double-asymmetric airplane was the SAAB-Vogt J.21V-3 dream of 1945/2015, with cockpit/fuselage on the starboard side and also with an asymmetric boom for propeller clearance.
(2015/07/04th) 4zzzq/ In 2015, the what-if modeller tonton42 presented the fantasy Compagnie des Avions et Vélocipèdes Européens Bitachu (bimoteur-moustachu) and suggested that I add an asymmetric twin of it. That produced the CAVE Bibistachu French hero of the 1940s, hunting dahus in the mountains. It may be the first almost-symmetric aircraft ever with a very asymmetric landing gear.
(2015/07/20th) 4zzzr/ Still in 2015, the what-if modeller tonton42 presented the fantasy Quadribronco with a discrepant profile, so I corrected this through a special asymmetric twin-boom layout.
(2015/07/21st) 5zzzzi/ The fantasy Mirage 50G, introducing an asymmetrically variable delta (AVD) would have required also a variable profile for the wing to produce lift in both directions....
(2015/07/25th) 5zzzzj/ The UAV-10B PentaBronco could have been the first asymmetric unmanned twin-boom & push-pull aircraft. Alas it is just a dream.
(2015/07/26th) 5zzzzk/ It seems the Quadri-Bronco 2T of 1942 featured a twin-boom asymmetry (of tails) never seen anywhere else. The technical reason for this very novative layout is: artistic fantasy.

(2015/07/30th) 4zzzs/ The what-if modeller PR19Kit required a single-boom version of my single-engined (twin-boom) Bronco and that created the UniBronco-1E, like a modern Bv-141, he said. And he corrected the first version into the second one, Blohm-und-Voss Bronco. Thanks!
(2015/08/01st) 4zzzt/ The what-if modeller Barry Snell joked about an asymmetric Mustang with wing on a single side, and that created the JHN-51 B & D Asystang, maybe the very first tandem-wing asymmetric aircraft in History (of Dream...), and perhaps the top-secret winner of World War 2.
(2015/08/04th) 5zzzzl/ In 1939, the Dyle & Bacalan design bureau was still secretly working (in my dreams) and created the most asymmetric of all lifting-body aircrat then: the DB-0021. My grandfather was probably the designer of it.

(2015/08/25th) 4zzzv/ In 2015, the what-ifer dams301 presented wonderful profiles of SNCASE/Dewoitine SE-580 in unreal British colours, and when I required a Zwilling version, he helped me doing it. But, on a profile, the asymmetry was not easy to see, so this D-580Z became the first airacraft featuring asymmetric painting (of course, many camouflages were already asymmetric but not designed to enhance asymmetry).
(2015/08/28th) 5zzzzp/ The SNCASE SE-580Z-4 & Asy-4 could have been the first half-asymmetric couple of aircraft, one version being single-engined asymmetric and the other : twin-engined symmetric.
(2015/08/30th) 8j/ In 1940, the Arado Ar-231 had wings asymmetrically installed (for folding backward one above the other).
(2015/09/03rd) 5zzzzq/ The IFA-38 Erining could have been the very first aicraft becoming asymmetric in flight (to get a perfect free arc for the rear post).
(2015/09/22nd) 5zzzzr/ Vought and Lockheed, with Blohm-und-Voss help in late 1945, could have worked together to generate the F4U-38A Twin-Corsair. With amazing turn capabilities in dogfighting (on a single side, though).
(2015/09/26th) 5zzzzs/ With a radar, Greg Papy Boyington (would have) used this F4U-44R as a night patroller. It featured a half-gull-wing special asymmetry.
(2015/09/28th) 5zzzzt/ With a double-half-gull-wing, the F4U-38AA may have pleased the abnormal pilot Boyington.
(2015/10/10th) 5zzzzu/ Maybe this is not the first asymmetric aircraft cartoon ever, but the Sorry-51D is perhaps the first gentle one, while the Angry-51D may be the first asymmetric bird with teeth. Seriously, almost.
(2015/10/18th) 5zzzzv/ Asymmetric butterfly tails could have been featured on the North American P-82AV and P-82V Twin-Vustang (improved derivatives of the symmetric Pi-82W Twin-Wustang). Saving drag and weight, maybe.
(2015/10/23rd) 5zzzzw/ The first connected half-T-tail may have been the P-82ST Stairstang derivative of the standard P-82. Unknown advantage, maybe surprising abilities in dogfightning?
(2015/10/24th) 5zzzzx/ The first asymmetric night-fighter may have been the AP-61 Asymmetric Widow. (The AP-61Z Twin-Widow would have been a still asymmetric derivative)
(2015/10/25th) 4zzzw/ It is possible to have both asymmetrical engines and asymmetrical staggered wings (and asymmetric tail of course) to improve the pilot's lateral visibility, like on this possible Caproni TriCorsaro, imagined by the what-if modeller tonton42 (I drew it as derivative of the symmetrical MutiCorsaro).
(2015/10/28th) 4zzzx/ In 2014, the what-if modeller Gondor dreamed of a half-Zwilling He-111Z having a single lateral fuselage while keeping its 5 engines. I drew in 2015 this Heinkel He-111ZH Zwilling Hälfte, and I added a double derivative (He111ZHZ), maybe the most fragile aircraft in the whole Aviation History.

(2015/11/03rd) 5zzzzz/ What-if the Mustang P-51 and Twin-Mustang P-82 had been designed in Germany previously, as Blohm und Voß P.151 Müstank and P.182 Müstank Zwilling ?
(2015/11/03rd) 4zzzy/ And... what-if the Twin-Mustang engines had been multiplied up to reach Mach 0.97 ? The asymetric P-82T-9 (imagined with the help of the what-if modeller wuzak) would have been famous forever, with more engines and bigger blades on the port fuselage.
(2015/11/03rd) 4zzzz/ In 2015, the what-if modeller Lauhof52 invented the North American F3J-2T "of 1944", with a port fuselage shorter than the starboard one.

(2016/02/12th) 4zzzze/ In 2016, the what-if modeller ericr invented a new kind of aircraft asymmetry : curved fuselage with the flexibility of an animal/fish, his Messerschmitt 262 Shark (of "1944") featured this new way, with a fin in an oblique position. .
(2016/02/13th) 5zzzzza/ In 1939, on some planet, the Bell Airacud-asymmetric was the best single engine plane of its category.
(2016/02/14th) 4zzzzf/ In 2016, the what-if modeller kerick invented a nice (asymmetric) change in the Northrop P-61 Black Widow: the P-61X would feature military improvement (gunners' field of fire or something).

(2016/03/07th) 5zzzzzc/ I dreamed of ADH-38 Lightning-derivatives with 2 symmetric engines, one per side "normally", but asymmetry in propeller positions, both longitudinally and vertically... This seem to be a first (with no reason at all to build it for real).
(2016/03/11th) 8k/ In 1932, the magazine Modern Mechanix presented an symmetric Hilburn steam device project, that was probably a sketch of an airplane controls but could be read as little light plane without cabin.
(2016/03/11th) 8l/ In 2016, the what-if modeller Ericr invented a flying 2cV air-car with an engine not fully in the centerline, like counter-acting torque. This reminds several French aircraft of 1939-45 (Bloch 152, Morane 733...), with 1 to 3 degrees oblical axis for the propeller.
(2016/03/13th) 5zzzzzd/ The Half-Twin-Airacuda reached a top in asymmetry (somehow, on some planet), having a fuselage on one side and a boom on the other side + asymmetric engine and second nose...
(2016/03/14th) 5zzzzze/ The P-82HLV introduced a brand new asymmetry: in the pilots' head direction, above normal on starboard, lateral abnormal on port... With related engine directions.
(2016/03/14th) 12zb (4zzzzh)/ Invented by the what-if modeller wuzak, the P-82RLV had rotating cockpit (and engines) to provide lateral view when needed. There is asymmetry when the cockpits' directions are different.

(2016/08/13th-11th) 5zzzzzr/ Well, 2 days before the P-82-72/144, I made the Asy-Lightning P-38-72/144 but this was less harmonious/simple.
(2016/08/17th) 11r/ In 2014-2015, Mc Donnell patented the design of an unmanned asymmetric aircraft, under the number WO2015/160394. This was a derivative from the patent US8408490 of 2007-2013.
(2016/08/17th) 8m/ In 2013-2014, Boeing patented a little-asymmetric tail and wing for airliner with the number JP2014104973 or US8979018.
(2016/08/17th) 12zc/ In 2014-2015, an all-wing aircraft carrier was patented, EP2957977 by Patents Factory, with dealing of asymmetric configuration when only 1 of the 4 airplane units is gone.

(2016/09/27th) 5zzzzzs/ The very first asymmetric lifting body aircraft may have been the CBY-3ZA Half-Twin-Loadmaster (small derivative of the symmetric CBY-3Z Twin-Loadmaster).
(2016/10/21st) 5zzzzzt/ The Lockheed P-76D Double-Lightning featured (in my mind) a unique asymmetric layout: "twin-boom but on the port wing only".

(2016/12/01st) 5zzzzzw/ In a family of double asymmetric Lightnings, the zwilling process somehow reduced asymmetry, except on the final He-2038C whose doubling process is asymmetrically modified because of a jet flame towards the tail. Somehow this is then a design "asymmetry/Zwilling/asymmetry", unique (and never built, yet...).
(2016/12/11th) 4m'/ The asymmetric airplane in Crimson Skies seems to be called Fokker P114.
(2016/12/20th) 5zzzzzx/ I imagine that in 1944 after the Bv-141 technical success, the Blohm und Voss designers proposed an even weirder aircraft: the Bv-270E, with single remote engine.
(2017/01/06th) 5zzzzzy/ The P-38ANNW would have been Asymmetric only in Noses and Nose Wheel.
(2017/01/22nd) 5zzzzzz/ A new kind of asymmetry would have occurred in a process of simplification, into the APL-38D Abnormal Prone Lightning, with minimum drag and weight.
(2017/01/22nd) 5zzzzzza/ Still another reason for asymmetry would have been justified on the P-82T-2, for a rear post with best rear view/defense-fire-angle.
(2017/01/23rd) 5zzzzzzb/ Another kind of asymmetry would have been a twin-fuselage plane with only the starboard side having a central engine instead of the classical nose engine, like on the P-82NFT Half-Cobra.
