Refueling on BBV-9 by Deepblu742 Refueling on BBV-9 by Deepblu742
Another 70's sci-fi inspired piece.

A brief stop among the basalt temples scattered around the barren flatland. The sparse topography makes an ideal spaceport for non-VTOL ships that require a large landing area.

Tidbits: The vehicles are rovers seen in 2009's MOON movie. The spaceliner/freighter is actually a heavily tweaked XB-70 Valkyrie, a prototype bomber of the US Air Force during the pre-ICBM cold war years. It's landing gears are from a B-1 bomber, elongated of course.

The building in the background looks almost identical to the Keyship from Halo 2 - Halo 3.

XB-70 is probably my favorite plane next to the F-14, Falcon, Phantom and Eagle.

Very cool :)
