Looks like a plane humping a bookcase.

Not entirely appropriate. Nobody's misidentified an aircraft yet, and the Avro Arrow / B-70 were completely different aircraft for entirely different purposes.

Although they both were long, pointy, delta wing designs with way too much engine. WHEEEEEE!

Heh, fair.

I sometimes think the best and worst time in history to be a fighter pilot would have been the '50s or '60s. Some of those designs were just nuts.
