Some unbuilt US military Transports :

Lockheed LGA-144, ' 80 project .Kind of a Super Galaxy with a longitude of 88 meters and able to load 180 tons (source: magazine of scientific popularization "Muy Interesante" May 1986)

A study of Lockheed of the '80 decade for a transport military propfan motorized (source:magazine of scientific popularization "Muy Interesante" July 1986)

The discarded proposals of Lockheed and Boeing for the program that gave as a result at the C-17. I find the proposal of Boeing reallyinteresting, described like a tri-engine development of the YC-14 with an unitary power of each motor of 22.680 Kg and able to transport 63.500 kg to 3860 kilometers. (source: "Interavia" magazine 8/1981)

Finally Lockheed concept for a possible future VTOL tactical airlifter.(source: Military Technology Vol.XI Issue 11.1987)

I have seen the Lockheed propfan picture before.

I am also familiar with line drawings of the Boeing tri-jet military transport, and have suspected that it was a competitor to the eventual McDonnell Douglas C-17. The particular picture is new to me, though.

Actually, just about every picture is new to me.

Lockheed missile transporter glider concept artwork

[link no longer active]

Attached to the artwork:

FOR RELEASE 6:30 AM EST 11/10/60

Sunnyvale, CA: Artist's concept of 211-ft wing-span glider that dwarfs the towing aircraft is Lockheed Missiles and Space Division's to problem of transporting huge missiles from factory to launch site. There are no existing road networks capable of accommodating the multi-tonned rockets and the only existing solution has been the use of river barges. Lockheed claims that towed gliders will be faster and cheaper and will use existing cargo aircraft. This cutaway shows how a rocket such as the Saturn would be transported.

I too would love to see more on the Boeing CX tri-engine design TinWing!!

Hi,


in the Germany Museum site,they display a Lockheed VTOL transport aircraft
with V-tail,and they wrote under that artist drawing L-1376,did they mean
CL-1376 ?,specially the wrote before under one or two aircraft for Lockheed
aircraft the suffix "L",and that was indicated to CL designation to a well know
aircraft,I don't know.

No, no, no! This is exactly the reason why I didn't want for you to go and post that stuff all over the place!

You jump to conclusions without trying to understand how this thing works! Not only you invent the hyphenated "L-1376" designation (which, thanks to you, will be in Google now in a few hours' time) but you fail to see that there is also "L:" data in many of the other non-Lockheed cards. Can't you see this?

Look at the files and compare how they're done. Even if you speak no German you will see that the same entries exist on every file.
"T:" letter is for Type. "C:" is for Country. "P:" is for Photographer. "R:" is presumably for Reference (of the book in the library). I do not know what "L:" stands for but it is always followed by alphanumerical codes, so it probably indicates either the number of the shelf or folder in which the original document lies.

hesham, the moderators' warning from a few months ago still stands: if you randomly post unverified or inept information from these German files, we will edit or remove your posts!

I always wondered why the double galaxy didn't have a joined tailplane...

Lockheed Turboprop Cargo Aircraft Systems Study, November 1981 found on NTRS

http://hdl.handle.net/2060/19820008197

Lockheed Georgia study on Advanced Turboprop transport aircraft. From page 102 on, study for possible dual civil-military role for a Propfan transport aircraft. Configuration No.3 was modified to USAF's C-X specifications.

The artwork on the last page is very similar to the Lockheed 4-engined Propfan concept in Post 1.

Seems like Lockheed put a lot of effort in the Propfan concept, with the Cl-1320 RECAT, various Civil and Military transport conepts and the PTA testbed.

Re: Various Lockheed civil-military transport projects

Hi,


I had to change the title,because the only topic for Various Lockheed Civilian Projects was closed,
and I hope to change its title for Lockheed Civil Transport and Airliner Projects and re-open it;
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,181.15.html


Here is a double-deck airliner project for Lockheed-California Company;
