The Burnelli Lifting-Body principle of design (a.k.a. Burnelli Lifting-Body technology) is superior to the conventional aircraft for the following reasons:
The conventional aircraft manufacturers commonly and irresponsibly hang engines and landing gear onto fuel tank supporting structure in combination with excessively high take-off and landing speeds on overstressed tires with little aircraft supporting structure to protect passengers in case of a crash.
Conversely, in Burnelli aircraft:
The engines and landing gear, the major fire sources, are attached to the robust fuselage, isolating them from close proximity to the fuel supply, with slower take-off and landing speeds and where a majority of the aircraft structure protects passengers in case of crash.
