Never during the XB-70 flight test program did the two fly in formation together. Wouldn't it be nice to see an illustration of these two in flight together... -SP

But doctoring aircraft photos is one of my hobbies, really... I have a whole gallery of imaginary aircraft on the What If forum, and you would certainly enjoy quite a few of the pics there. I have also started a website that recaps all of my creations (over 130 so far) with thumbnails and backup stories. Here's where you can find it: http://aviadesign.online.fr/main-2010.htm
Please let me know if you've liked it (or not)!
Thanks Steve!!!XB-70 Guy said:FANTASTIMONDO! You rock, Steve-a-reno!
Well, yeah. But since there never were three B-70s, I figured it would be more convincing to pretend these were production B-70A articles procured circa 1973. Sorry for whiffing around... :-XXB-70 Guy said:actual serial numbers would work...
Yeah, I see what you mean. They look like they're flying too close to one another. I'll see what I can do...shockonlip said:I'd like to spread them out a little.
No big deal, but I thought the limit was ~1.5MB per attachment. While nice, these aren't even close. Or did I miss something?shockonlip said:Sure, let's go bigger. I blew the max allowed posting size already once.
Let's try these.
You'll notice there were only two larger images, not three like on the original post.DSE said:
Thanks. Well I guess the US interpretation of "Maximum attachment size allowed: 1500 KB, per post: 8 " is not correct. I would interpret this as attachments up to 1.5 MB are allowed and a total of 8 of the preceding, not a maximum of up to 8 attachments totaling 1.5MB. So be it. Maybe it's a UK/US thing. Sorry.shockonlip said:[

I tried to add the third larger cover image (in color) but when I did, it blew the size.
I was also cramped for time, so I just said to hell with it and posted those two.
Good to hear from you again DSE !!
IIRC there were also B-58 and Suntan studies for a supersonic tanker.I've just found this... "supersonic refueling studies". Dear God.
Douglas and Lockheed studied hypersonic refueling for Aerospaceplane studies. Convair probably did as well.IIRC there were also B-58 and Suntan studies for a supersonic tanker.I've just found this... "supersonic refueling studies". Dear God.
One CL-400 would serve as a tanker for another. The B-58 pod might be good for some experiments, but it wouldn't hold near enough LH2 to be worth bothering with operationally.Oh boy, never knew that ! I suppose the deal was to get a special pod below the B-58 with LH2 for the Suntan ?
HereWhat's that comic ? I need to know !
