From an old issue of Lockheed Horizons, a cutaway painting of the Lockheed p-38:
For a documentary, a supposedly exact replica of the glider was built and flown. Sadly, due to nanny-sate regulations is wasn’t manned… it had a couple of dummies and a remote control system. Still, it flew well enough to do what the original was supposed to do.
A painting from an old issue of “Lockheed horizons” depicts a STAR Clipper 1.5-stage-to-orbit early Space Shuttle design lifting off from a desert launch facility (probably White Sands or Vandenberg).
Much, much more on the STAR Clipper can be found in issue V3N2 of Aerospace Projects Review.
I put together a number of photos I recently took of Hill Aerospace Museums newly-restored F-104A into a free downloadable PDF booklet.
If you like this, feel free to distribute hither and yon. If you *really* like this, feel free to toss a dollar or three my way.
If there is interest, I will make more of this sort of thing… I have a vast collection of photos of aerospace and weapons systems that might be of interest.
This design was featured in the F-23 derivatives article in the recent V3N2 issue of Aerospace Projects Review. This was an attempt by Northrop to adapt F-23 design elements to a Naval role, carrier-capable.

Kids these days…
It is perhaps sad… but really, long overdue. The nuclear aircraft carrier USS Enterprise is just about done.
This design was featured in the F-23 derivatives article in the recent V3N2 issue of Aerospace Projects Review. The unusual geometry was an attempt as radar reflection shaping.
