Here are some HSCT (High Speed Civil Transport) Designs from Aviation Week.
Well, actually no. The T-tail I mentioned was an early-1968 Boeing design. Langley re-used the idea (BTW, their favorite one by then was SCAT 15F- based) to explore the tail-impingement problem. Anyway, thanks for the scans. The Boeing delta one was the blended-fuselage version of the 2707-300 that the company rejected for building and expecially security (emergency evacuation) problems.Among these drawings, T-tail VG design which SKybolt told us is included.
blackkite said:NASA's study in 1982. According to NASA, compered with same cross sectional area single fuselage, drug decrease in supersonic speed because of pressure interaction of each fuselage and structural weight is smaller. M shape wing type has best lift to drag ratio and followed straight middle wing type.
