Northrop Grumman ''Peregrine'' twin-deck airliner by Bispro Northrop Grumman ''Peregrine'' twin-deck airliner by Bispro
We all heard of Boeing and Douglas airliners. Even Lockheed had a go at it with the TriStar... but what if Northrop Grumman had been a fourth player on the American airliner market? Here is an attempt to depict a possible such design, the Northrop Grumman Peregrine airliner.

The design is simply modified from the real-life Teledyne Ryan Model 350 Peregine UAV, once briefly used by the US Air Force as the BQM-145A Specter. Since Teledyne Ryan was taken over by Northrop Grumman, turning their UAV into an airliner for that company seemed logical.

Of course, some will argue that the wings seem small. But this is only fantasy, right?

I would have named it the Beluga.

Ha ha! But that is already the name of the Airbus Super Transporter that carries chunks of the Ariane rockets!

We once had a Beluga in our hangar when they were unloading a european unmanned spacecraft. Made a huge impression on me.

Anyway, you produced an interesting aircraft here. I like those teamcolors as well! :)

No, if Northrop Grumman made a jetliner, it would be a flying wing.
