Somebody's gonna bring it up so might as well be me:




Looks like AW&ST's "Blackstone" project or whatever.

Suppose you mean "Blackstar"?

If you compare it to something from the black world, "Brilliant Buzzard" would be much closer because this one was thought to carry its second stage on top, as shown in the attached pic of the Testor plastic model.

"Blackstar" is said to carry it's second stage XOV underneath, see second pic.

Ok, passenger vehicle then? (Noted the windows on the rocket-glider)

Ahh, yes... The "good-old-days" of actually walking out onto the ramp to board your flight... ;D

Thanks

For the Two-stage bird yes, I know from experiance that walking up a BOARDING ladder that high wouldn't be a 'fun' experiance for passengers ;D

Having nearly tumbled down boarding ladders on regional jets multiple times (too much carry on luggage), I agree.
