    3 Carrier Groups and Boeing 797 -
    A New Way To Fly

    [​IMG]

    The plane in these pictures is still officially the 'Air
    Vehicle Number 1', a prototype, on board the USS George
    Washington CVN-73 for catapult fit checks. Not exactly still
    Top Secret but certainly not yet made public.

    It will be known as the F/A-37. Although specs are
    classified, it is believed to be Mach 3.5 (top speed in the
    Mach 4 range), super-cruise stealth
    fighter/bomber/interceptor with approximately a 4,000nm
    range. Awesome!

    For the first time in over 20 some odd years, three carrier strike groupsgot together in formation for a great photo op.

    From top to bottom are the aircraft carriers, ABRAHAM LINCOLN,
    KITTY HAWK, and RONALD REAGAN.

    We even had Air Force planes fly-over, see the B-2 Stealth Bomber
    in the fifth & seventh picture down. The only warships not seen in the
    photos are the 4 nuclear powered submarines standing guard.

    The New 747 Now this is an AIRPLANE!!!

    [​IMG]

    Look at this new aircraft....
    Boeing is preparing a 1000 passenger jet that could reshape the Air travel industry
    for the next 100 years. The radical Blended Wing design has been developed
    by Boeing in cooperation with the NASA Langley Research Center .
    The mammoth plane will have a wing span of 265 feet compared to the
    747's 211 feet, and is designed to fit within the newly created terminals
    used for the 555 seat Airbus A380, which is 262 feet wide.

    The new 797 is in direct response to the Airbus A380 which has racked
    up 159 orders, but has not yet flown any passengers. Boeing decide to
    kill its 747X stretched super jumbo in 2003 after little interest was shown
    by airline companies, but has continued to develop the ultimate Airbus
    crusher 797 for years at its Phantom Works research facility in Long Beach,Calif.

    The Airbus A380 has been in the works since 1999 and has accumulated
    $13 billion in development costs, which gives Boeing a huge advantage now
    that Airbus has committed to the older style tubular aircraft for decades to come.

    There are several big advantages to the blended wing design, the most
    important being the lift to drag ratio which is expected to increase by an
    amazing 50%, with overall weight reduced by 25%, making it an
    estimated 33% more efficient than the A380, and making Airbus's
    $13 billion dollar investment look pretty shaky.

    High body rigidity is another key factor in blended wing aircraft. It reduces
    turbulence and creates less stress on the air frame which adds to efficiency,
    giving the 797 a tremendous 8800 nautical mile range with its 1000 passengers
    flying comfortably at mach 0.88 or 654 mph (+-1046km/h) cruising speed
    another advantage over the Airbus tube-and-wing designed
    A380's 570 mph (912 km/h).

    The exact date for introduction is unclear, yet the battle lines are clearly drawn
    in the high-stakes war for civilian air supremacy. What an amazing thing!

    I thought they were cool and I must say they were fun to check out even if they are fake.

    Fake or not they are all pretty cool pics. It is a shame that they are not real though.

    Not sure the fighter would be airworthy though. Don't look like it but I am not a airframe engineer so.....

    I thought Jap liked them because he was trying to figure out how he was going to hook up the tow line out of the 797.
