BOEING'S NEW 797 - IS IT REALLY A "WONDER"- OR DOES IT ACTUALLY MAKE YOU WONDER?
The American Aircraft Manufacturer- Boeing- just launched their newest venture- the Boeing 797- under the utmost secrecy for trails. The pictures included was taken by an amateur photographer. This "new" concept aircraft promises to "revolutionize" air traveling and more specific- war utilization.....or does it?
Let us first have a look at this new "evolutionary" wonder:
It can comfortably fly 10,000 Miles (16,000 km) at Mach 0.88 or 654 mph (1,046 km/h) with 1000 passengers on board !
Boeing is preparing this 1000 passenger Jet Liner that could reshape the Air Travel Industry. Its radical "Blended Wing & Fuselage" design has been developed by Boeing in cooperation with NASA Langley Research Centre. The mammoth aircraft will have a wing span of 265 feet compared to 211 feet of its 747, and its been designed to fit within the newly created Air Terminals for the 555 seat Airbus A380, which is 262 feet wide.
The new 797 is Boeing's direct response to the Airbus A380, which has racked up orders for 159 already. Boeing decided to kill its 747X Stretched Super Jumbo in 2003 after little interest was shown for it by Airline Companies, but continued to develop its "Ultimate Airbus Crusher", the 797 at its Phantom Works Research Facility in Long Beach, California.
The Airbus A380 had been in the works since 1999 and has accumulated $13 Billion in development costs, which gives Boeing a huge advantage. More so because Airbus is thus committed to the older style tubular structure for their aircraft for decades to come.
There are several big advantages in the "Blended Wing & Fuselage" design, the most important being the ‘Lift to Drag’ ratio which is expected to increase by an amazing 50%, resulting in an overall weight reduction of the aircraft by 25%, making it an estimated 33% more fuel efficient than the A380, and thus making the Airbus's $13 Billion Dollar investment look pretty shaky.
"High Airframe Rigidity" is another key factor in the "Blended Wing & Fuselage" technology. It reduces turbulence and creates less stress on the airframe which adds to fuel efficiency, giving the 797 a tremendous 10,000 Mile range with 1,000 passengers on board cruising comfortably at Mach 0.88 or 654 MPH, which gives it another advantage over the tube-and-wing designed A380's 570 MPH.The exact date ! for introduction of the 797 is as yet unclear, but the battle lines are clearly drawn in the high-stakes war for future civilian aircraft supremacy.
Does the Boeing 797's design not match some of the old German versions?
WHAO....AND DOUBLE WHAO! How these American Boffins can come up with wonderful technological wonders like these- makes the mind boggle....or do they in reality play the "copy and paste" game ?
To find the source where and how these American aeronautical boffins "suddenly" came up with the futuristic "Flying Wing" design- one just has to "back-trace" it's origins to a much earlier time- more specifically- World War 11. The place where this new wonder had it's origins- was a secret installation called Gottingen Aerodynamic Experimental Institute. This secret installation was the brainchild of the then German Air Vice Marshall- Hermann Goering. Goering instructed the building and experimental tests on new concept aircraft that could save Germany the war. Much new designs came to light- some took the air- to be scrapped due to the fact that their designs would never even be feasible for the war arena, some actually took part in the last days of the war- like the awesome V1 and V2 rockets that sent terror throughout London, the Messerschmidt ME 292 that could out climb, out fly and outmaneuver any known English aircraft at that time- including the Spitfire Mk iv...and a few more stunning new concepts.
The German Messerschmidt ME 292
Some did not even left the drawing board for various reasons. ...even flying saucers! Some of these magnificent "strange" designs that never left the drawing board - was the Messerschmidt ME P08.01, the Arado ARE 555- and the most astounding - the Horten XV111 B-2 design by Walter and Reimar Horten. (Isn't it strange coincidence that the Americans "designed" a Flying wing stealth bomber with the same name- the B 2 bomber as well? ) What made them different from previous designs- was that all of these were "Flying Wing" designs. The Hortens designed quite a lot of Horten "Flying Wing " designs- but the XV111 B 2 -was the most likeable design to qualify for production.

( See ww.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=566849483A21593D ) Sadly- this wonderful new family of aircraft entered the war arena a little too late to save the German dignity.
When the allies overran Berlin- the knowledge of this secret facility fell into Allied hands- and the Americans were quick to capitalize on the situation. They literally "wrapped and packaged" the whole secret installation before the Russians and British could lay their hands on it- with all the engineers, designers and builders- and shipped them to the USA in a very secret place in the Mohave Desert- now called Area 51.
There they created a secret Aeronautical plant to design new aircraft for future utilization. One must also take note that Boeing was in a battle with the British Air Industry in order to try to dominate the skies- and at that point in time- the British Comet took the air first as commercial airliner- threatening to take all-out air superiority. Had someone just told that Limeys that you cannot install square windows into a sub-sonic jet propelled aircraft- they might just had put the bunny ears on the Americans, but sadly for them- due to this small terrible oversaw technicality- all the Comets exploded mid-air like fire-crackers around Buckingham Palace on Guy-Fawkes eve...leaving the British Lords and De Havilland production team sulking in the mud of De Hartlends Hatfield and Northern Ireland.... handing the air superiority trophy to the Americans with Boeing launching it's 707 series 707-120- for it's first flight on December 20, 1957.
The De Haviland Comet- Note the square windows.
The first Boeing 707- the 367-80 took off for its maiden flight on 20 December 1957. It's initial trails started with a first flight on July 15, 1954.
How could they know - post war aerodynamics was not as advanced as we have today- and this disaster set the British back ages in the air transport business. This after they were still reeling from yet another air disaster when their first subsonic jet they build - a DFLS Hawker Hunter- (Frank Whittele designed the jet-propulsion engine in his garage)- which also exploded in 1952 during a fly-past in front of the crowds at the Merryfield air show. The Hunter was designed to out fly the Messerschmidt 292 in battle. Sadly- by the time these aircraft was deemed "operational"- the war was already over. The Hunter never made WW11 operational status.Only after the war did designers reconfigure the design to produce a better plane.

After that the Gloster Meteors followed- also a lot of them crashing like flies being swat from the sky- the first one also at Merryfield where they approached in mist after a night fly exercise- and one took a nose dive in a suburban area . The Meteors was accident-proned from the start. Only in 1952 alone a total of 150 Meteors were involved in accidents. One Lord (Norman) Tebbit flew Meteors- and was quoted saying on one occasion:
"I trained as a jet pilot with the RAF and lived for the 'sheer animal thrill' of flying at high speed. One day during take-off in a Meteor something went wrong and I found myself trapped in the cockpit, my oxygen mask full of blood, and the plane, which was full of fuel, on fire. I assumed Iwas going to die but, instead of panicking - I considered my options, and eventually found a way to break the glass and scramble free before passing out." Thus the Comet disasters- 5 in all- was a terrible set-back for the Limey Aeronautical congregation.

Poor Lord Winton..I suppose he ran out of hankies . It seems the Limeys just couldn't get it right. After the war- the head of the German team- Professor Dr. Albert Betz- handed the secret designs and programs personally over to his American counterpart- Dr. Theodore Von Karmann. Straight after this- the American contracted Aircraft designer- Northrop- immediately produced a similar Flying Wing design- the Northrop XB 35. Uncanny- isn't it? It's design matched the Messerschmidt ME P08.01 to a T!

Yea...you are right...these Americans never play fair. From the day they captured and hi-jacked the German facility- it was all "cloak and dagger" games....and when the Yanks start their "cloak and dagger" games- you know they are up to no-good. They forced the German scientists to reveal all their rocket secrets- Von Braun designs- in order for the Yanks to develop booster rockets for the nice moon landings, the RAM-jet propulsion secrets to manufacture old Chuck Yeager's X1 jet propelled prototype for his speed record through the sound barrier- and naturally- the Flying Wing technology of the Horten brothers to produce the B2 stealth bomber..which now enveloped in this magnificent Boeing 797 design.So did the yanks then- on the backs of the German scientists- became that "great" nation where everything is "bigger and better."

It looks like the Yanks has always been- and are just as bad thieves as the British...copy and paste brothers in deception- are they now?
That Americans eh...never a dull moment in that great "Land of opportunity!"
