I believe it is the von Schdube Dunderbuss.
It had 12 engines (the aft bank is obscured, here), two Natters that deployed from side air bags, a revolving restaurant in the nose cone, the lost episodes of Dr. Who in the Upper Deck Storage compartment, flechettes (self-deployable) stored in the masterful labryinth of struts and braces, sanitized seat liners (disposable) for the pilot and co-pilot, an egg-hard-boiler fore of the pilot, with attendant egg racks along his side of the fuselage, three video cameras for in-flight/onboard antics, an over size (matching a large beach ball) bubble device, similar to a mason's level for Horizon indicator and a doghouse aft of the pilot to house each aircraft's standard compliment of six Rottweillers.
It flew unarmed.
It was assumed allied achievers might possibly miss it, due to stealth technology hemployed in the Day. The use of flat black paint was considered a shattering breakthrough. Lamp black was not used. They instead utilized pine tar and coal dust and this was believed to be their secret.
In black and white photography of the period it shows up, oddly enough, as grey.
It was later sold to Jim Henson and used in the movie
The Fish That Ate Sheboygan.
Herr v. Schdube only flew it once.
Thereafter he walked in circles muttering "where are the blueprints" and "the future is now"
"A King may move a man, a father may claim a son,
but remember that even when those who move you be Kings,
or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone.
When you stand before God, you cannot say,
"But I was told by others to do thus."
"Virtue was not convenient at the time."
This will not suffice.."
