That tilt wing looks like a Herald to me?!

Hi,

a group of NASA projects,such as V/STOL fighter and transport aircraft.

Hi,

from NASA archive,a six propeller aircraft model and the early version of
X-2,notice for X-2 the slender tail fin.

Hi,

anther two NASA projects,each six jet engined aircraft,but one
was subsonic and the other was supersonic.

The wind tunnel shapes include Apollo shapes (some of the famous "with vanes" design and some with the escape tower too) as well as reusable booster stages (the blunt cylinders with a flare at the bottom). So they are just some shapes that have been tested in the hypersonic wind tunnel for a wide variety of programs.

The Boeing plane looks like a Mini-Valkyrie.

Cruise and acceleration are conflicting design requirements. Thus it doesn't make sense to make a cruiser launch small craft or a booster that cruises.

It looks like and, actually, *it is* a Boeing's submission in a NASA study for SST technology applied for 500-mile radius supersonic cruise fighter for European air battle area.

used for propfan test assessment.

Hi,

near-sonic transport wind-tunnel model,was with area ruling
and advanced supercritical wing.

Hi,

here is,a distributed propulsion with many engines applied to a
conventional trasnport aircraft,notice the circle tail,and the
Kuchemann's jet-wing concept.
