For those not familiar with the design, this was a study for
a composite long range supersonic attack aircraft designed to operate from the
original USS United States super carrier; more details can be found in this
book. The article, which originally appeared at the
Aircraft Resource Center, has been reworked with additional photos and
commentary; it now features 29 photos of the construction process and finished
model, which is approximately 26 inches long. Amazing and inspirational work!
