Prolly an artist's conception redux.

I like the "cranked arrow" wing, though, and an XF-16 variant with that wing almost made it to the Next Strike Fighter contract. If the manufacturer had put vectored thrust on it, the F-22 would be based on the F-16 now.

This is a "Blogger BS-223A." Actually this is the proto type. No one has ever seen the "real" BS-223A. It's used to ferry workers to and from area 51 on a daily basis. The reason this is such a rare photo, is the pilots always have their cloaking device on to make it appear like a 737-200. After the pilots major screw-up, they were both assigned to fly cargo to China, where the government promptly tried to kill them. Hence, picture #4.

Looks very fake, simple beam equation will tell you that with the engines so far behind the main wheels, it just can't work. But.. I guess anyone can probably say that, and now I feel the fool for having stated the obvious.

While at first glance it looks cool, but after a second I don't find it that great... but maybe it's cause I study Aero engineering, who knows.
