If we are going to discount Mach 1 performance, what kind of top speed would actually be reasonable for this aircraft?
Bookshelf & Marketplace / The best Avro Lancaster book?
« Last post by Pasoleati on Today at 05:56:26 pm »
What is the best technically oriented book on the Avro Lancaster? Would it be that by Francis Mason (1989 Aston book)?
1) The first design shown. Can you imagine how loud it would be
2) The wingless designs. Flight time in minutes due to the incredibly high fuel consumption

How was it going to get lift in forward flight?
Wasn't aware the Russians played MK, had them pegged as SF fans.

Pay attention to the upper deck, too.  Only 7 seats abreast in economy. A380 has 8 abreast. Thus, because MD-12 is 11 abreast on main deck, where A380 is 10 abreast, the difference is 4 extra seats on MD-12, only 2 on A380.
Does anyone have MD-12 cross-section to compare with A380?

The numbers are still illegible, even at maximum enlargement.
Think along Myasishchev EMZ M-60 lifting body design.
EMZ and Ilyushin have signed an agreement for cooperation on prospective works.

This model is from the desk of late Ilyushin chief Livanov. You'd make some multiplication though.
I believe the MDD image above is a early JSF proposal tunnel model.  The intake you are seeing is for the front lift fan.

Let's have this topic renamed as "Mike Smith projects" then, shall we? ;-)
