This was to be a mach 3+ high altitude bomber developed around the same time as the Blackbird. 2 were built before the program cancellation, once crashed, 1 is at the USAF museum. Another beautiful plane.

    Takes a lot of likely towards the Concorde(s), which were they not built around the same time as this?

    This is one of the most amazing planes we’ve ever built! I saw it at Wright-Pat in the early 80’s. It had the lowest drag-ratio of any plane we’ve built. You’d think that we could take today’s technology and make it even better than it was. Wouldn’t it have been cheaper to redesign this than build the B-1?
