    Seems the concept artist had a thing for ekranoplans (GEVs).

    I guess there’s some sense to them, particularly since they could move a lot of equipment/vehicles quickly and are probably more durable then an LCAC.

    Boeing SST was too big, too heavy and (was supposed to) flew too fast. Had the US gone for something the size of Concorde, it would have suceeded.

    Yes, too fast. The higher speed (Mach 2.7 vs Mach 2 on the Concorde) caused greater tech problems, agravated by it's size and weight (this being almost twice that of the Concorde); had Boeing gone for a more modest and slower model...

    To reduce the carbon dioxide emissions from air travel, Hatsunia has pioneered the usage of hybrid electric transport aircraft, such as this vehicle by the Hatsunia Aerospace Science and Development Agency (HASDA).

    Commercial air carriers, such as Tricolore Airline, have begun to switch (full size).
