Doppelganger Lifting Body

Jonathan E created the original drawing of the Doppelganger lifting body and I made some adjustments to it. During my research I discovered the wings were seen in three positions in the film. They are illustrated in the updated drawing. Derek Meddings was ahead of his time. The Soviets designed a similar spaceplane, but the prototype did not fly until 1976-the Soviet Mig-105 Spiral.

Someone asked me to show the different positions of the wings for the lifting body. I have attached photos I found on the Web that illustrates this.
