This is a really awesome technological breakthrough. I can't wait for 2035! This what America needs. Eco friendly technology.

Ooo that's purdy!

Looks like the same ol' tech though just with some improvements to aerodynamics to make it fly (supposedly much) more efficiently.

They did show it painted green though. When you paint a car red, it goes faster. Maybe when you paint vehicles green they become more efficient!

What a giant boost for green technology!

Thanks for the excellent post.


Something great to look forward to!

That is one cool looking aircraft.. Interesting that it has a Lockheed logo on it. I am wondering if this is a prototype in the works, or just a drawing.

How exactly is this thing green?

Because it has green paint on it?

That's not normally what people associate with "green machine" these days, right?

I thought supersonic aircraft had terrible fuel efficiency per passenger-mile compared to subsonic jets, the reason being that aerodynamic drag increases dramatically with velocity?

The only thing I see is "no sonic boom", well, that's nice, but I wouldn't call that "green" I'd call that "no sonic boom" or maybe "quiet".

Very nice toy for the rich to get to dinner in Paris and back to LA to sleep..

But I dont see it being green, all power and low lift..
