Couple more unknowns from my files. There is something familiar about the first one but I have not been able to find anything about it. Maybe its fan art.
The second one looks like it might have been a study or part of a presentation. Unclear where the intakes are. The drawings were on plastic film such as is used for overhead projections.

1st one is a Boeing CCV bomber concept. Scott provided a nicer color rendering on the APR blog in the recent past.

Second two, I got nuthin. "Mid-mission hover" sounds intriguing though.

Yup:

The Boeing "CCV 100-2" concept, though apart from artists renderings, a display model and some design patent drawings, data on this has remained elusive.

That one I would argue is not a bomber but a stealthy VTOL Spec Ops transport.

Does anyone know of a sensible definition of "control-configured"? Aren't all aircraft that don't pivot and dig a crater immediately after takeoff control-configured? Perhaps this is 70s aviation's counterpart to that other innovation of the decade - the Sports Bar. Before the development of the Sports Bar, most beers were consumed while watching sitcoms but the Sports Bar has now put most Sitcom Bars out of business.
