Boeing pulls back the curtain on the NGB

NGB.jpg The most excellent Bill Sweetman of Aviation Week posted a few pictures of Boeing's Next Generation Bomber display at the Air Force Association Convention earlier today. Pretty slick looking, though after all these tanker/raptor/csar-x fiascoes you've gotta wonder what the price tag will read.I've heard rumors that this joint Lockheed-Boeing project would produce a medium range, medium payload bomber, but Sweetman's pics kinda/sorta resemble a long range, heavy payload B-2 Spirit.More photos and commentary here . Be sure to check out the Northrop Grumman computer model as well. We won't know a thing about capabilities for years now, but I think NG has already inched ahead in the sexiness department.--John Noonan
