Lockheed liquid hydrogen-fueled widebody double-deck concept

The oil crises of 1973 and 1979 still fresh memory, Lockheed in 1980 explored several designs for airliners using liquefied hydrogen for fuel. Source: Bill Gunston, ed., The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Commercial Aircraft (London: Phoebus Publishing, 1980)

In 1981, Lockheed designed also hydrogen-powered Supersonic airliners: the first for 300 to 400 passengers on 7,400km at Mach 2.7, the 2 others similar for only 250 passegers. The goal was to enter service near 2000 year.

From the same magazine: a hypersonic airliner, with hydrogen ramjets, for cruise at 6,000km/h (Mach 5?) at 36,000m altitude:

  • Short Range, LH2 Internal Tank Transport
  • Short Range, LH2 External Tank Transport
  • Medium Range, LH2 Internal Tank Transport
  • Medium Range, LH2 External Tank Transport
  • Long Range, LH2 Internal Tank Transport
