Found a weird but cool aircraft in shipbucket done by Guillermo23212, ALVAMA, Eswube, KimWolf.
Overall, there are two modifications done to the aircraft:
1. Redesigning the top of the fuselage to be more aerodynamic, adding the rear radome and adding a couple antennae (weakness of mine XD),
2. Adding the shuttle and shuttle struts.

My idea is that the small section still left of cabin would be used by technical staff overseeing the detachment of the shuttle, the overall reduced height of the fuselage is to reduce the weight and lower the center of gravity of the aircraft when the shuttle is loaded on top, and the rear radome would be used to track the shuttle from the aircraft as it accelerates towards orbit.

Nice idea, perhaps plausible.

Hello CaptainPaulov, that's one great idea for the advanced and realistic further use of a more than useless idea from the old days. :lol: When I created this image, it was nothing but memories from my teenage days. Your's is really more than plausible - Thanks.

Expanded on the full CATE series. I'm thinking of doing a sheet of fictional operators, not too sure on who would use them in my AU.

This is a continuation of the Air Galicia AU airline I presented a couple of pages back.

Air Galicia Boeing 707-420 (Top 707 is the first livery for the first couple of units and has a small part of the fuselage in bare metal as a tribute to the original DC-4E livery; and the one below carries the standard livery):
