What a truly astonishing report. Packed with beautiful pictures. also exploring the feasibility of a F-1 powered booster, which made so much sense.

Factory model of the Grumman Design 518 Orbiter. Until this report, I had no idea the front panel line was for a swing-nose and the ones just behind the flight deck were for pop-out pairs of turbojets. What an exceptional document!
