It's the Do335 Pfeil, a pushmi pullyu.

I too had seen that grip before and searched for ages before I found it - on both the Convair Delta Dart and Dagger. That set me wondering where on earth they'd got such an unconventional idea and went looking at unconventional stuff. Stroke of luck really.

I did wonder about the double-ended llama, but I knew the Skymaster had a conventional yoke.
