    Most awesome looking plane ever!

    Strange looking plane. The lower portion looks like it ends in a very un-aerodynamic flat surface. Am I missing something or is that a design flaw?

    No, those are the intakes for the engines. This thing cruised at mach 3+. Uber cool plane. Had honeycomb skin and actually lengthened at speed due to thermal expansion. Also, the crew had capsules that protected them if they had to eject at speed/altitude. I think they made 3, one was lost during a photo shoot/test flight. Damned shame they didn’t run with this design.

    I saw one of them when I went to Wright-Pat in Ohio many years ago. You just have to stand next to them to get the full awesomeness of it!
    6 engines inline of 30,000 lbs thrust each is amazing!
    If I recall correctly, this design had the least amount of drag for any plane designed. Do some research, watch the videos. You’ll love it!
