The Sci-Fi Airshow Museum has a page showing one of the most iconic spacecraft ever
designed: the Boeing "Liberty" X-27-REV (re-entry vehicle.)



Designed & built in 1965-1967, the vehicle was cancelled in favor of the Apollo capsule.
However, instead of being forgotten by all but the most fervent aerospace enthusiasts, its lease
(& later purchase) by 20th-Century Fox studios in 1968 for the landmark film "Planet of the Apes"
has enshrined it forever in science-fiction history. - (tongue & cheek)
