AF Museum (road) trip from The PapaGolf Chronicles by DaveG
I'm sure there are valid reasons for not doing so, but I sure do wish that the United States Air Force Museum at Wright-Patterson would provide a way for pilots to fly in for a visit. Certainly that would make a bigger difference to people that live further away than the 1 + 10 drive that I have, but it would still be an infinitely cooler way to arrive. Particularly when arriving in an airplane that looks as if it would fit right in as an exhibit. It is what it is, though, so a road trip it was.
The secret to the AF museum is to get there promptly at 0900. That's not a critical success factor, of course, but it does help alleviate some of the obstructions to photography that crop up once the Cub Scout groups and families with half a dozen strollers arrive. There's an even bigger secret that I am only willing to share with you because of the limited readership here at the Chronicles. That secret is that the first thing you do when you get into the museum is to get in the line to get out of the museum. Given the counter-intuitive tenor of that advice, I will elucidate. ...

SCAT-15F SST from The Unwanted Blog by admin
From a 1965 Boeing report to the FAA. Boeing took the general aircraft configuration produced by NASA as the "SCAT-15F-220″ and fleshed it out as a proper aircraft design. The SCAT-15F-B2 was the same design as the SCAT-15F-220 except that the fuselage was stretched to permit 215 passengers (the original seated 198). Gross weight was 430,000 pounds. The SCAT-15F-B7 was the final iteration, adding retractable canards for low speed control - the same thing was done with the Soviet Tu-144 SST, but in the Boeing design, the canard was a single-pivot wing. Cruise speed would be Mach 2.7, typical misison range 3476 nautical miles, and gross weight bumped up to 500,000 pounds, of which 226,500 pounds was fuel and 43,000 pounds was payload.
