pretty cool site

Wow, just to have fun with this and based upon almost 30 years in aerospace, I would estimate the version with the battle ship turrets would require over 30,000 horsepower to over come the aerodynamic drag alone. Each engine would have to produce between 6,000 and 10,000 HP just to get it in the air. The wing skins would be almost .500 in thick just to carry their share of the load and that would be using modern aluminum alloys. BTW, I am not an engineer and did not put pencil to pad to get these numbers. Just thought I would have some fun speculating. Of course the photo recon version of this aircraft would use Pentax cameras and lenses. Possibly 50 to 60 spead out around the aircraft to get every angle possible. With 20 of these being the top secret digital MF and FF cameras.

That was fun. I wonder how big the tripodwould have to be to hold that thing steady off the ground?
