Burt Rutan conceptualized and constructed the Boomerang. Rutan introduced the Boomerang in 1996. The Boomerang is one of several twin-bodied aircraft on this list. Rutan designed for this multi-engine aircraft to survive a failure of one of its engines. A distinct aspect of this aircraft is the different sized bodies. Its asymmetrical thrust helps pilot handle the plane if an engine shuts down. Ray and Neil Morrow established an air taxi company with an altered Boomerang inspired design. The Boomerang holds one pilot, and four passengers with a cabin payload of 1000 lb. The maximum take-off weight is 4,189 lb. The maximum speed is 311 mph.
