Boeing, Supplier Team Continues Progress on Sonic Cruiser

Progress continues on the Boeing Sonic Cruiser. The Sonic Cruiser is a new airliner concept designed to fly at speeds of up to Mach 0.98, shortening travel times and with fuel consumption per passenger comparable to today's best performing widebody twinjets. The team working on the program, led by Boeing Commercial Airplane Programs in Everett, Wash., now includes five external suppliers and two additional Boeing units.
