Still smaller than an 80s boom box.
There are quite a few delta wing fighter bombers around - the Typhoon being oneI do love the look of a delta wing aircraft. Is that old tech now?
You don’t see that many flying wings as they all flew to the secret Nazi base in Antarctica at the end of WW2 and the licensing agreements are quite restrictive.There are quite a few delta wing fighter bombers around - the Typhoon being one

I don’t know of any specific delta wing bombers nowadays, although the stealth bomber might be classed as one (or classed as a flying wing…not sure). As for delta wings, Concorde is a classic and probably qualifies as old tech. We have one in a nearby air museum. It’s pretty small inside.
The Vulcan Bomber is well known but the Handley Page Victor (another of the V Bomber force) less so. I love this plane. It looks like something you'd find in a nineteen fifties comic that is trying to envisage what the future might look like. Entered service in 1958 and ended life as a tanker.
