The opening preface notes why high torque airplanes have never been a consideration of air design, early requirements of heavy lift better met with airships, and awkward objects to remote areas moved by heavy lift helicopters with their vertical takeoff and landing capability. A purpose is created to justify high torque airplanes. Chapter 1 describes the requirements for a high torque airplane: big propellers, extended landing gear, boxy fuselage to give propellers room to turn. The plane needs a lot of lift surface area to compensate for air resistance and slow speed. Chapter 2 suggests that energy can be extracted from a storm through more efficient discharge of electricity created by the storm turbulence. Reasons to justify this are given. Chapter 3 suggests that the craft might have some use as a transport plane, given that the expense of building it is written off against public safety from storms.
