I asked Dryden’s X-48B & C project manager Tim Risch why he thought the blended wing-body airplane got a lot of notice at the Green Aviation Summit.

He said it’s because it’s a good idea. “One of the main reasons is that it has such great promise for revolutionary improvements in the three main areas that the summit is emphasizing (noise, fuel burn reduction, and emissions). Also, the X-48 has strong government and industry participation, and the concept has been demonstrated in flight, which lends credibility to the concept.”
