And each design has to fly up to 85 percent of the speed of sound; cover a range of approximately 7,000 miles; and carry between 50,000 and 100,000 pounds of payload, either passengers or cargo.

We LOVED the Lockheed Martin design, but the Boeing and Northrop Grumman concepts were pret-ty cool as well.

Which of these do U think is the closest to being the perfect plane?
