In addition to the LHX topic I found these two illustrations regarding the X-Wing development:

Lockheed X-Wing testrig from “Interavia” 7/1982 (pg 642).

An example for an civil X-Wing proposal from “Introduction to V/STOL Airplanes” by Kohlman (pg 166). Manufacturer/company? Designation?

Hi folks,
here a Lockheed-California X-Wing commercial jet concept from the early 1980's. It could have accommodated up to 50 passengers.


This concept might have been posted somewhere else in this forum. :-\
So in such a case, dear Mods, please feel free to move it to a much more suitable topic. :)
