Strange Aircraft

Recommended Posts

Though most of them were fakes of course, a couple stand out.

 

First, the aircraft painted up to look like a 787 Dreamliner is actually a real aircraft called the 747 LCF Dreamlifter.

It's used to carry 787 wings from Japan to the US in about 8 hours.

 

Secondly, the flying wing aircraft, though not real of course, were featured in a Air and Space Smithsonian magazine issue about what aviation might look like at the 150 year anniversary of the Wright Brothers first flight.
