Abgasturbine = turbocharger?

Probably, but principally the power of that turbine could be used as well to boost the power output
of the engine, as in a compound engine. A turbocharger would be a "Turbolader", but parlance wasn't
and isn't always exact, not even in technical documents.

Designation Systems / Re: LIPNUR X series
« Last post by hesham on Yesterday at 05:53:06 am »
Dear Hesham and Apophenia,
thank you for the X series from Indonesia, very interesting stuff  ;D.
In my notes I have a first flight date of 15 January 1965 for X-07/NU-50, but I have never seen any picture of this 2-seater and I honestly doubt whether it was actually built/flown.
Any ideas!

Via my dear Boxkite,

I have only this drawing my dear Walter.

That model appears to show the extended diameter fuselage for the higher capacity airliner version of the B-70.  Very interesting find.

After surviving the B-70 mid-air incident, Chief Project Pilot Al White left NAA, and joined Trans World Airlines as a VP of Supersonic Research.
