Armstrong Whitworth Waverider
Part of Waveriders Family
British manned spaceplane. Study 1960. The Armstrong Whitworth Waverider study of the 1950`s called for a two-crew waverider spacecraft powered by a second stage atop a British Blue Streak rocket.

Status: Study 1960.

To provide symmetric aerodynamics during ascent, two waverider shapes would have been mounted bottom-to-bottom. The "image" waverider shape would contain extra propellant for the manned spacecraft. The group leaders of this project were H R Watson of Armstrong Whitworth, and Dr W F Hilton of Hawker Siddeley. The spacecraft design was by T R F Nonweiler, who worked as a consultant to the project.
