it was supposed to be something like an 800-1000 person commercial aircraft for trans-atlantic travel, kind of to replace cruise chips and the like, never got off the drawing board

Pretty cool. Kind of like Russia's Ekranoplan, the Caspian Sea Monster. Although that pic just looks like a model to me.

I already told you, it is a model, never got past the concept stage

In fact the problem is not about if the project is just a model or a real vehicle :

It's the design or a style wich interest me :
I've recently made a post about WW-2 luftaffes sexret project, in aircraft but I deleted it because nobody was interested about that.

That thing is just asking to get shot down...

How fast do you suppose it could go? 100? 150?

It was never ment to be a design for a plane. I believe it was a art model or something.

Well I was watching a program about the Russia Ekranoplan and they showed a picture of that model. I believe the program said that the model was from the 40s or 50s, and they wanted to show that people were thinking about the flying boat idea.

It resembles the B-2 stealth bomber.

Look at this:

m2reviews.cnsi.net...
(There is video capture images and pics of model.)

This and many others have Russians bulid.

This is not Sci-Fi.


The one i knew about had JET ENGINES, so this model is news to even me.

In 1920/30/40s Horten Brothers in GERMANY first build the "Flying-Wings" including one Flying wing fighter bomber which has many features that the B-2 has today.

Russian "Flying boats" have nothing to do with "Flying-Wings".

Greetings all.

i stand corrected flying wings were not invented by russians or by the US but by the germans. however a little looking into what you just said brigs up this:

...Reimar and Walter Horten were a step ahead, testing an all-wing sailplane in 1933...

so they ARE related. i gather the difficulty was in finding a suitable area to land in for such a massive aircraft.

whethere it lands on water or on land is inconsequential as the main thing is that flying wing tech is a loong running project.

bah, i might as well correct myself b4 someone else does it. it appeares that flying wing tech is even older that the Hoten brothers:

Beginning in the late 1920s, Jack Northrop, founder of Northrop Aircraft Co. (known today as Northrop Grumman), led the design of several military planes based on the flying-wing design. Later, Northrop's company was one of those contracted by the U.S. Army Air Corps to build a longer-range bomber during World War II. Northrop delivered the YB-49.
