Boeing Advanced Bomber Studies
« on: August 19, 2006, 12:35:26 pm »
These are advanced Boeing Bomber Studies from the late '70s. Except for the two Rockwell design, which I left in due to the two page Boeing 'X-Wing' Bomber design.

I think that one on the right hand page was an oblique wing design (can't remember from who) where the wing rotated to be flush with the fuselage leaving a very slim and flattened lifting body design with twin fins.

There's a Rockwell design of that description on the Right-hand side of the scan (there should be a scroll bar below the image).

Just how fast was it supposed to go to generate sufficient lift?

And *where* did those side views come from?

Note: the Rockwell strategic bomber side view has errors. The main wings had positive dihedral.

Eh eh, Mister Lark wins the First Pize... ;)
Probably Aviazione & Marina had some three-views of the concept but not of all. This explains the wrong dihedral. There is another error in my opinion. The High Supersonic was the tandem wing, the large delta was the "strategic" (it is improbable to drive a so large wing to mach 1+)....

I've seen another shot of that one in which it has a negative dihedral.  Not saying you're wrong just that somehow the impression got out there that it was negative.

Fixed the thread (and on holiday too! - luckily some people don't secure their wireless very well) for you.

Sundog, the image you are posting is 1250x1624 in size, when the server tries to resize it down to thumbnail size it decompresses the jpg and then runs out of memory. I can't change the settings on the current server, so best to reduce the resolution. Saving it as a lower quality jpg doesn't help.

Problems caused by posting large, hi-res scans are described by Overscan two messages above, and all of us could watch the fruitful results of this for about a day. I still eager to see what that large Sundog tried to show us - I bet it was something very interesting as always. I personally didn't know about pixel size limitations of images, and will be more cautious.

If you want, you can just ask Skybolt to post it via e-mail, he surely will be able to help.

Sorry about that, as soon as I get home (At the office now) I'll make it smaller and repost it.

OK, I replaced it with a small image and a link to the larger one. If the first image is too big I'll make it smaller as well. In the future, I'll make big images with links and small preview images, unless the image is small to begin with.

Any chance of a higher res version of the 3-view of this proposal?

For that matter, is there a full 3-view of the more convetional swept wing, twin engine plus booster design?

Some of those Boeing designs could still be viable today- given an environment with almost zero air threat (Afghanistan, Iraq) an efficient "bomb truck" loaded with LGBs and JDAMs could orbit in patrol areas "on call" to ground units that are engaged with insurgent forces. There is a recent article in the latest issue of AWST that talks about discussions at the Pentagon for a close-support aircraft more geared to COIN warfare than the current high-tech legacy systems in use. The article talks about smaller aircraft, but the current generation of sensors and precision weapons I see no reason right off hand why a larger "bomb truck" type aircraft couldn't do the job.

Leave the dirty job to bombs... or to drones with bombs. An aerial drone-carrier (again) loitering at 20.000 m, itself remotely controlled. On the same level of sensors and computer/communication, I'd consider the new explosives (hyper-termites, supercompressed and the like): a 50 kolos bomb could do the job of a half a ton one

I think it's a bummer they didn't build 713-1-138.  Think super-sized B-52 with four twin-engine nacelles under each wing instead of two.

I'm about 99% certain 713-1-138 wasn't LH2 fueled and if it was it didn't carry very much because it didn't have the Goodyear-blimp look of most LH2 aircraft.  It simply looked like a scaled up B-52.

Oooops, you're right. I confused it with with tis one:

http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=243.msg1444#msg1444

Anyway, not all the liquid hydrogen projects were blimp-like. Think ot he L-400 Suntan, or, in the WS-110A studies, the Boeing 725-101.
Talking of scaled-up B-52s, my favourite is 713-1-135.. almost zwilling...

Pometablava: see message above about image sizes.

The current web hosting has a memory limit on PHP code which causes problems with the thumbnail creation process if the pixel size and colour depth of the image combine to exceed the limits.

To minimise these problems:

1) Try not to exceed 1024 pixels in either dimension.
2) Save greyscale images as greyscale JPEGs not colour ones- they use less memory to resize then.

If your image is too large (say, 2000 x 1000), then even saving it as 5% quality for a 20kb file won't stop the error message.

Please note that, generally speaking, 1024 pixels is large enough for a reasonable quality image.

Paul.

One could theoretically duct a propfan?  :o Or does it become a very high bypass turbofan in that case?
Of course, you would need a sufficiently high fuselage volume.

Exactly. This concept may be usefull when your goal is to have the aircraft for the low intensity conflict with the weak air defense and you need quiet low weight subsonic plane with great range.

One could theoretically duct a propfan?  :o Or does it become a very high bypass turbofan in that case?
Of course, you would need a sufficiently high fuselage volume.

Almost every new engine for the big civil airliner is the high bypass turbofan. To duct the propfan... hm, there were some tests in Russia recently on the Il-76 but I am not sure about the results. With the relation to Boeing in that era, they probably also considered to use UDF (unducted turbofan) engine. However not any of this concepts can survive in heavily defended territory, so they couldn't meet the coming ATF requirements.

I wonder if they produced this stamp for foreign collectors to get hard currency?

...Show me a third world nation that doesn't do that. Hell, even the USPS does this with dozens of commemorative stamps each year. After the fall of the Evil Soviet Empire, the Russians got into the game with a commemorative pair block featuring Groucho Marx and John Lennon. It became the largest boost to the post-Empire Russian economy in the first year after the failed coup led to the downfall of Communism in Russia.

Hopefully you foreigners will get the joke...

LOL, I wasn't aware that the Russians actually has a sense of humor :)

bombers,look at the cockpit and the wing,and those two artist
drawings were posted in the same issue.

Moderators, I poked around with the search engine but couldn't find a suitable home for these pictures - the ATB thread may be the closest thing, although i swear i saw some of these on this forum before. The captions shed some light on the concepts.
The following pictures come from AvWeek, circa 1979. There are several Boeing and Rockwell concepts, the latter being Raymer's.
All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm

Merged and consolidated topic. The design, that Stargazer2006 originally posted is Boeing supersonic tailess airplane and is already covered here.

Thanks Matej. Allow me to say once again, though, that the Rockwell Delta Spanloader is also known as design D645. This may help in future searches.

Actually it's already there. And this thread (which I hadn't visited previously) describes ALL pre-ATB bomber designs by Dick Raymer as falling under the D645 designation, however different they may have been. The Delta Spanloader was D645-4A.

Thanks.  I suppose better than nothing, I suppose.  I'd really like a 3 view though.
