Design the Worst Airplane

Hughes H-99 Daedalus, aka "Atomic Albatross" , a huge atomic-powered flying boat that limits the need for crew shielding by putting the reactor as far away as possible in the tail. The all-wooden airframe is very resistant to neutron activation, and despite misgivings by engineers, "probably" won't be set on fire by the 1500 degree reactor components. There are however concerns about what will happen if the reactor is accidentally submerged.
