Thanks! I certainly did not miss the discussions of the Sonic Cruiser, it's just that I had always seen side pictures of it and it looked a lot narrower and sleek to me than that plane on the website. I never would have guessed that that thing was the Sonic Cruiser. So does this mean that it is still being designed? I remember a few months ago, there was a rumor going around on these forums about Boeing canceling the Sonic Cruiser program.

M27 - that looks to me to be a front on view of the aft-wing version shown in all the other pictures. Look at the canards, the engines, and where the trailing edge of the wing is in relation to the fuselage. It all looks exactly the same as the other publicity photos.
What I want to know is if they intend on having a 5 pane flight deck windshield, or if that is a mistake, and they will be sticking with 6 panes.
