Blended-Wing-Body Megarocket

Post by Stickmanofdoom » Wed Feb 12, 2020 0:25

Today, I saw an article entitled Airbus unveils 'blended wing body' plane design after secret flight tests. In discussing the article, some commenters abbreviated the design as "BWB". Digging deeper, the KeenWiki points to a George Carlin sketch as an inspiration for the "Bean-with-Bacon" Megarocket name, but I'd bet money they also chose it because the acronyms matched.

Interesting,it definitely has a scifi-esque look to it that I'm really diggin'. Initially I was skimming your post and thought one of the spambots had returned due to the link title and you jumping right in to it :lol

The alternate paint job of the scale model shown in the video clip really looks Keen-esque.
