Sonic Cruiser continues to gain enthusiastic support from potential customers and suppliers around the world. A new image of the airplane, which is being showcased by Boeing at this week's Asian Aerospace 2002 in Singapore, was released and is available at boeingmedia.com.
The Sonic Cruiser is a new airplane concept unveiled by Boeing in March last year. The airplane has a dramatic new configuration and is designed to fly as fast as Mach 0.98, shortening travel times with fuel consumption per passenger comparable to today's best performing widebody twinjets. The program remains targeted for 2008 entry into service.
