Re: B-3 Hypersonic-2

There was a sighting of an oval shapes vehicle over O’hare Airport recently. My usual inclination is to believe such sightings are a hoax but I remember seeing hypothetical pictures of wingless hypersonic vehicles. I can’t find the one I was looking for but I found this picture:

Unfortunately, I can’t find any description of such a vehicle on the web so perhaps it was just something someone random drew on their computer. Please post any pictures of wingless aircraft you know. It is not that I believe the person actually saw something but it is fun to imagine.

Those vertical surfaces look tacked-on, for looks, when they should be at the edge and canted in order to have any effect. Beautiful artwork thought.
