Lockheed CL-400 Suntan

A proposed follow-up for the U-2, essentially a scaled-up F-104 modified to for extended high-speed/high altitude flight, it would have burned liquid hydrogen as fuel. Supposedly, prototypes were almost finished when the project was cancelled, primarily due to a lack of range and no real option for in-flight refueling. Gear doors in the closed position are in the model, but hidden. Just unhide them and hide the landing gear and open doors if you'd like an in-flight version. My pilots are just place holders, I'd suggest Max Grueter's U-2 or Space Shuttle pilots are alternatives. #cold_war #F104 #hydrogen #jet #Lockheed #max_grueter #suntan #U2
