Great Find Borovik. Thanks.

Any idea about he time frame of these concepts ?

A long time ago, I saw a drawing from a Russian publication of a Tu-4 with four(6?) parasite
aircraft below the wings.Unfortunately the drawing is lost.
Parasite aircraft were of a different configuration. Could they
be from the Yakovlev OKB ?

On this topic, Convair designed a nuclear-powered anti-submarine warfare flying boat in the late 1950's that was to carry two parasite fighters. A 30-inch-diameter tunnel would lead through the wings to the fighters, allowign the pilot to spend his time in the main aircraft's spacious fuselage. But the ride down the length of the tunnel would have had to have been pretty spooky... because shielding that holw tunnel adequately would be weight prohibitive, so the pilot would get nuked in transit. Fun...

Weaver - great video I always watch this early test flight stuff with amazement so dangerous, crazy.

I also think of "News article from the future/past"

XF-85 Goblin cancelled after turbulence causes pilot to crash land. Congressional inquiry to investigate billion dollar defense boondoggle.

Model of Convair parasite fighter found on eBay.

CONVAIR AIRCRAFT USAF Strategic Bomber Parasite Fighter Concep Model. Metal construction with a 5" fuselage and 3.5" wingspan. This was originally part of a larger bomber proposal that included this and other style parasite fighter designs. Near mint with just a small paint chip to one wingtip.
