One picture that I saw looked almost exactly like the X-33 space plane.
blog.wired.com...

One thing is for sure, if they are going public with it then they have been
working on it for a LONG time.

No wonder people are balking on the F-22. As awesome as that plane is,
it would be no match for a Hypersonic Robot Attack Vehicle.

Another interesting note is that this thing would be able to service platforms
in outer space. Gnarly!

I've been doing a quick scan on the "Blackswift" sounds like the idea is to have this one produced in numbers, not a few or so like the blackbird or the aurora.
Funny the ventura star was canceled!! when they where saying they where nailing its problems and this plane looks remarkly (possible the same graphic designer) simliar. But then if your going a set speed the designs will look alike (look at F1 motor racing cars).
