    I’ve always loved the design of the Valkyrie.

    The only aircraft I know of that ever sucked another aircraft through its engine while in flight

    The mishap in 1966 did not involve sucking in another aircraft through it engine,

    You are correct. A T-38 impacted the XB-70 during a photo op after departing controlled flight due the massive vortices generated by the Valkyries unconventional wing design. (according to the incident report)

    To say that it was sucked into the engine is hyperbole, though I believe that during the impact the XB-70 did in fact ingest at least part of the 38.

    Yep, the same thing happen to that Chinese fighter that crashed into that US Navy EP-3 survillence plane a few years back.

    Yes it did, but not to the degree of the Valkyie incident. The Chinese fighter (in the Hainan Island Incident) was fucking around and got to close to the EP-3 (within a few feet) and was pulled in by the EP-3’s wing vortex, the two collided and dumb ass (Wang Wei) was killed.

    I meant that no part of the aircraft was ingested by the turbo-prop, and it wasn’t due to either crafts vortices. The Chinese pilot collided with the EP-3…
