And from the point of view of Walter Dornberger, long range passenger transport
is at least since 8 years accomplished by rocket powered aircraft, using reusable
winged launch vehicles : ;D

(from InterAvia 11/1953)

from the 'Eagle' annual, 1962,

the RR griffith VTOL SST, already mentioned elsewhere, in formation with the Convair NX-2.



an image of the Bristol Siddeley 'flying pig'


and an impression of a Northrop flying submarine. i think this last one is pure speculation, based on a written description, as the illustration bears a striking resemblance to the saro P.121 hydroski fighter project.

for the record, the illustrator, and also article author, was one Gordon Davies.

cheers,
Robin.

Sorry, but it IS the P.121, as the caption says ?!
But many thanks for these illustrations, as the retractable skis
at the wingtip pods are clearly recognisable.
Haven't seen this before, I always thought of simple wingtip floats !

The third one looks like it could've been stolen from the storyboards from some upcoming "twenty minutes into the future" sci-fi movie.
