Interesting theory.  I'll see what I can dig up on ISINGLASS and see if it represented the Mach 6 KINGFISH design.

Why launching a small rocket suborbital aircraft from a B-52, when DynaSoar early variants did the same job from a Titan I ?  ::)

We need some thread on Dynasoar here one day (or maybe this thing is not "secret" enough  ??? ?)

Wow! An aircraft that always intrigued me--probably because so little is known about it and I had such difficulty seeing how it would look if it had been built. Well, now it has been built! By an artist. Thanks Jozef for making my day. I am so happy you're on this forum.

Two sides of copyright. One year ago Flight International promised me some money for used PAK FA picture, but...
