Hello, I'm looking for some information on a (british?) supersonic VTOL (passenger jet?) project. Anyone any ideas about what this concept at the bottom left page is and by who?

For the record the link you gave posts 3 aircraft, 2 of which simply will not fly supersonic. In fact I think that the Lunar and Boeing models will have trouble with the basic "flying" principle. To be honest it appears that the only project investigating supersonic civilian transport would be the one between Japan and the United States (there was a thread about this not too long ago, I'll dig it up at some point), but as far as British supersonic jets I can't say that any of the concepts below would be feasible let alone developed.

Luna Gemini was a low cost alternative to the Apollo moon program, defiantly not an aircraft.

I made it clear I only want information on the bottom left one.

A quick search turned up only very little useful information:



Hypersonic VTOL by Chris Gibson
This 1957 British design was of HIGHLY unconventional configuration featuring a ramjet-powered variable geometry craft capable of transporting passenger at up to Mach 5.

I'm hardly an expert on planes, but I think the F-35 JSF is the only plane that has proven VTOL & supersonic flight.
