X-48 Blended Wing Body
The Boeing X-48 is a scale model of a heavy-lift, subsonic vehicle that forgoes the conventional tube-and-wing airplane design in favor of a triangular aircraft that effectively merges the vehicle's wing and body. Boeing and NASA believe the blended wing body concept offers the long-term potential of significantly greater fuel efficiency and reduced noise.
