Too bad this never *really flew. That...and that they insist upon labeling it "Aurora"

An airframe like this would have cast a cool shadow...

That would have been pretty cool to see.

Sure it sucks. Ok. Except I've actually seen a Dash One that referenced it. It was buried down the page where if you read too fast you'd skip right over it.


I may or may not know where you're coming from, but i dont think we can discuss this on the merits.

Northrops XST looks very interesting, the rival to the stealth fighter when competing for the contract.

A few thoughts-

There were other studies/programs around the same time focusing on IR/RCS reduction- besides XST.

DARPA may have had a low rcs fighter program which predated (and perhaps led to) the XST/Have Blue program.. and there are the Quiet Bird, Quiet attack, Silent Night and and other projects.

Also- interesting to note that, at that time, there were more bigaerospace companies than now.

Many of those companies are no longer in existence.

If you look at the early low rcs designs of some of those companies..and the designs of the companies that bought said companie- and put those together....
