Well he didn't do everything all by himself in his Batcave.

Good Day All -

A nice find in the Parks Air College archives was this photo of Paul Czysz with a familiar model in hand. McDonnell Douglas photo dated February 1982.

Enjoy the Day! Mark

Awesome picture!! Hopefully there's more on Cysyz and the 192 (among others) still to be found!

More HYFAC: Phase I trade study:


Of interest to me was the discussion (PDF pages 58-73) about the propulsion options, including:
  • Rubberized LR-129 up to 1 million lbf
  • Aerojet concentric-nozzle hypergolic engine of up to 600K lbf
  • Two different GE wraparound turboramjets
  • A Marquardt variable-geometry hydrogen scramjet
Also of note is a reference to a series of “Mach 5” tests of a hydrogen-fueled scramjet in 1967-68 by United Aircraft.

The references at the end could lead to quite a few adventures in FOIAing.

You find interesting designs while looking for other information. I was thinking of writing a book on the AMI program, but the book I'm working on now is taking so long, due to difficulty getting information, I don't see an AMI book happening, so there is no reason to hang on to these. I'm not sure they belong here, but it seems the other MAC AMI design studies are here so here are two more from THIS PDF At DTIC (A004214).

Mission A (The top image) is a duct burning Mach 3+ Interceptor and Mission B (The lower image) is an air-turbo-ramjet Mach 4+ interceptor.
