No-one knows exactly what came over the Lockheed engineers who designed this weird contraption... A twin-fuselage JetStar with canards and a mind-boggling 10 engines all located at the rear. Some historians have speculated that the aircraft was meant to carry a heavy container or perhaps an atom bomb in the central space between the fuselage. However no definite information has surfaced.


My aircraft re-creations are usually done with realism in mind... But sometimes I let my imagination go wild... This Lockheed CL-2658 Superstellar is a good example of that! Two JetStars put together, stretched and enlarged wings, 10 jet engines instead of four, canards at the front...

  • You have not lived, until you have ridden in a plane that is powered by 14 jet engines. (Pixel-pencil)
  • Air Force One's crazy big brother? (SomeRandomMinion)
  • Passengers with internal windows would see a tiny angle of landscape but they could maj a sign to say hello to passengers in the other fuselage. a whole new World for travel agencies, this is funny... (Tophe2)

My comments:

Not only that, but you could decide that passengers afraid of heights would be on the inner ends, leaving the unobstructed sides to flight lovers...
