Volpar got permission from the FAA to pursue a 2 engine 727 reengining, but it
was too little too late, and Volpar was headed fast down the tubes by then,
anyway. Also, it appears that the increased nacelle area would blanket the
horizontal tail at high alpha, increasing the likelihood of pesky deep stall.

Speaking of Valsan, what's Bob Wagenfeld up to these days?
