The Boeing Bird of Prey stealthy demonstrator hanging up at the National Museum of the USAF (or whatever they’re calling it these days).

    That thing is so cool looking.
    Long time back an airliner had a close encounter with a UFO the pilots described as “looking like the front end of a SR-71 with fins on it” and had some sort of a canopy on its top.
    That was probably the Bird Of Prey or a close relative.

    Admin —

    Do you have any blueprints of this you’d be willing to give out, or at least sell? The YF-23 plans were an excellent find on your part.

    All I’ve seen is a fairly basic three-view.

    Looks RADAR stealthy. But how tight a turn can it make, and how fast can it go, without stalling the engine inlet?

    I actually liked Tacit Blue myself.
    A shuttlecraft with wings.
