excellent stuff. thanks . Airlines actually gobble a sizeable chunk of the world fuel output and with air travel booming in places like India and China we may need more of this stuff. especially for long haul routes

Re: Reduced Energy for Commercial Air Transportation (RECAT) studies

Dear Boys and Girls, would any of you know the source for a good 3-view general arrangement drawing of the 200 seater RECAT version of the Lockheed TriStar please, as shown above? Good enough to use for making a model?

Carave, it was a GALAC study, and things done at Lockheed-Georgia tend to be under-documented...

Intended in 1981 to fly at Mach 0.75 before the end of the 1980s, at short/medium distance with 120 passengers.
Source : in "Science & Vie" magazine, Hors Série "Aviation 1981-1990", drawing by J.J.Vincent from Lockheed data.
(Maybe it should be classified in an existing topic but the search tool did not find a similar subject with "Lockheed propfan" and found nothing with "Lockheed propfan airliner" - sorry, moderators.)

The way things are going, there is likely to be a sizeable ready market for such aircraft these days.

Re: Reduced Energy for Commercial Air Transportation (RECAT) studies

This Lockheed project is more than 30 years old now, in the meantime have appeared (with success) the Fokker/Bombardier/Embraer short-distance jets, will the propfan change the situation more now than yesterday? With Airplanes built in USA or in Brazil/Russia/China? Nothing is clear...
