The main article exhaustively details the Lockheed STAR Clipper stage-and-a-half space shuttle concept, from 1968 to the 1990s. Includes detailed schematics of many different versions, including fully reusable two-stage versions, versions with solid rocket boosters and others. Also: an article on antecedents and derivatives of the Northrop F-23 stealth fighter, including the rarely seen "Christmas fighter" and the operational F-23A. Also included are info, art and photos of the Multi-Role Fighter, a predecessor of the F-35 concept but based on the F-23; detailed schematics of the proposed Naval Advanced Tactical Fighter, which was a much changed design with aft wings and canards; and most interestingly, information and never-before-seen images of the infamous F/B-23 regional bomber. Also included is an article by Dennis R. Jenkins on a supersonic transport variant of the Convair F-106, and small articles on the Vanguard Model 18 VTOL transport and a Northrop long-duration LFC multi-role concept.
