Can Anyone Think Of A Two-jet Top-winged Plane?

By top-winged, I mean something along the likes of the Antonov An-148: http://www.airliners.net/photo/Anton...n-Bureau/Antonov-An-148/1404981/L/

For one reason or another (and I'd love an explanation), it seems that most planes with the wings at the top are either propeller-powered or four/six-engined. What other airliner-sized planes are there with the wings and two jets above the fuselage?

The Beriev BE-200. Not sure if it was ever actually part of an airline fleet, but it was designed to include use as an airliner.

That thing is quite impressive. Its one big plane... bigger than it looks in pictures (about the same size as a 767-200). I'd love to see one in person.

There was no such aircraft. All BAe 146/Avro RJs have 4 engines.

Thanks for the terminology correction. I was tempted just to use the German vocab: Tiefdecker = low-wing, Mitteldecker = mid-wing, and Hochdecker = high-wing.

Boeing YC14 High Wing , Engines above wing !. Somewhat similar to the AN72/74 in appearance but bigger.
Was Demo against YC15 of MCD in competition which eventually lead to the C17 !

The Boeing YC-14 and the McDonnell Douglas YC-15 were medium sized transport designed to replace the Lockheed C-130.

The McDonnell Douglas C-17 is a large transport designed to replace the Lockheed C-141.

The YC-15 and C-17 are completely different aircraft.

Yes thats about right I know- Wasn't the medium size contest cancelled ?

MCD certainty did incorporate much learned from the YC-15 into the C-17 liniege.

However in relation to this particular topic the YC-14 is more relevant

re 146 with 2 engines. There was a mock-up model of a 2 engined 146 version in the MDC at Hatfield in the late 80's, but there were some problems with the size of the fin for the engine-out case, and the runway requirements were much more than the standard 146.
