This "flatbed pick-up truck" concept is one of the more interesting planes that never flew.

Having open air cargo seems like a crazy idea to me, so I'm not suprised that it never took off. Still fascinating though. Check it out.

Problems with the concept include the cargo being blown off, bits of the cargo being blown off, aerodynamic issues and likely more that I haven't thought of.

There's a detailed report on this concept available here:


In the Soviet Union Myashischev made a smaller but similar concept:
