It May Take A While,

to work out what this airplane is for,

 here is the clue, in fig 1b those are shipping containers, the ones you see on the back of lorries and those huge ships,
so when it just has to get there quickly you can fly the container there instead of sending it by boat, a bit far fetched do you think? well the folks at Boeing do not think so when a couple of days ago they filed a patent on the idea, patent number US 9,139,283 B1 to be precise, if you are wondering why the landing gear is so far apart it is because the plane rolls over the containers and then drops on to them, will it ever take to the skies? your guess is as good as mine.
