Yup ... just take a look here !CammNut said:Checking the same Japanese TDRI site - did you see this one?! Says its an RCS test model...
Thanks Maveric. It'll be interesting to see how the commercial version does against Boeing's BC-17.Maveric said:Hi,

X-x??? If you are talking about C-X, the first flight is postponed again to not earlier than late this year, due to problems found on static structural tests.Deino said:Thanks for that info ... any idea, when the X-x is planed to have its maiden flight ?
Apophenia said:Thanks Deino! Fantastic detail ... especially that belly shot.
It seems that studies of the YPX are underway: http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/generic/story_generic.jsp?channel=awst&id=news/aw081808p3.xmlchornedsnorkack said:Kawasaki XP-1 is:
The first brand new designed narrowbody low-wing underwing quadjet since the classical Boeing 707, DC-8 and Convair 880. B747, Il-86, A-340 and A380 are widebodies.
Also, what we seem to have is a brand new manufacturer of high-bypass turbofans.
What is XP-1 fuselage like?
How hard would it be to build a VIP transport/airliner version of XP-1?
