Ernie Martin is an unknown quantity at this point
Is Northrop's new plane-drone partly based on the Skymaster?

The rear of Northrop Grumman's new airplane/drone, designed by Burt Rutan, looks a lot like a Skymaster: rear propeller engine with top-mounted scoop, twin booms and rudders. Take a look below (click to enlarge).

Morne is on a distinguished road
Rutan has a thing for twin-boom tails and pusher props (and what gentleman of taste doesn't?). Witness his M-309 CarbonAero:

This, of course, led to the Adam A500.
