    Makes for a fun read. Mostly pipe dreams though.

    Aren't pipe dreams some of the most interesting aircraft to look at and estimate the chances of them actually being a working design though?

    They serve their purpose for fantasy and "what ifs?". I'm not knocking it. Like I said, it's a fun read...like Popular Science. Much of these fantasy planes served as intellectual test beds for technological ideas.

    Yep that they are, that they are. Fascinating things. Although I can't see any of those tri-fin plane designs really working, can you?
