BTW...I don’t see any big advantage this would have for a bomber, since it wont be capable of going supersonic, what would this offer that the B-1 or B-2 doesn't have.

EDIT: Also, one more thing. How the heck is this thing supposed to fit into those itty-bitty gates at the airports? Folding wings, maybe, but thats where the passengers can sit, ain't it?
