How exactly did they do this

Ever watch the "Seconds from disaster" or " Mayday" series.....Those are all computer animated recreating real situations.

It looked to me like the 737 BBJ merged with the tail section of the Global Hawk. I really saw no point in this 'modification' except for some subtle advertising for the manufacturers of both
|Quoting TSS (Reply 9):
I seem to remember one of the very earliest jet fighters, either a pre-ME262 prototype or a British analogue of same, had twin underwing mounted engines with nacelles that were slightly flattened on the bottom (a la 737) and a V-tail
Interest in high-speed flight, which led him to initiate work on swept wings starting in 1940, is evident from the advanced developments Messerschmitt had on his drawing board in 1944. While the Me-262 HG I actually flight tested in 1944 had only small changes compared to combat aircraft, most notably a low-profile canopy (tried as the Rennkabine (literally racing cabin) on the Me 262 V9 prototype for a short time) to reduce drag, the HG II and HG III designs were far more radical. The projected HG II combined the low-drag canopy with a 35° wing sweep and a butterfly tail. The HG III had a conventional tail, but a 45° wing sweep and turbines embedded in the wingroot

Haha when I saw that I cringed. Destroying a perfectly good BBJ for that aeronautical mess.
