No more news. It seems to be dead before to be born.

I think what has happened is that the technology developed for the Sonic Cruiser, has been transfrerred to the 7E7 program. Boeing must have decided that the 7E7 was a more attractive program.

Ruscoe,

it wasn't so much Boeing that decided that the 7E7 program was the more attractive program, but its customers that did not show any interest in the Sonic Cruiser.

Actually, there was a huge interest. What there wasn't was money. (recession, 9/11)
