George Turner of Bastard Sword has a crazed idea for upgrading the F/A-18E Super Hornet by - get this - making it a temporary biplane via disposable fueltank/wings. He calls the resulting hypothetical contraption a "Super-Spad". His tech bafflegab doesn't sound too outrageous, and he addressed my uninformed concerns about radically altering the aerodynamics. Sort of.
