The Mojave-based Scaled Composites, originally Burt Rutan's brainchild, is living up to its reputation of designing and building amazing (and often odd) flying stuff in record time... Their latest production is the Model 351 Roc, built for Paul Allen's Stratolaunch enterprise, quite simply the largest aircraft on Earth, able to carry space vehicles into the stratosphere.
The Roc is "only" a two fuselage aircraft... but what if it had three instead? This was the premise behind my TriRoc, based upon a photo of the real aircraft, to which I added an additional third airframe in the middle.

Two rockets between three fuselages?

Where do you stick the rocket, though?

This version would be used for different purposes I guess. I was thinking of two large rockets such as the old Pegasus types, one on each side of the central fuselage. Or it could carry cargo pods attached under the wings... Imagination is the limit! ;-)
