Wow, one big plane. Thought I would share this news with all of you. I always wonder if Boeing would ever get their own "Super Transporter" Can't wait to see it fly.

That has got to be the most unaerodynamic thing I've seen Boeing do.

Of course it makes ya wonder about the other programs that Boeing doesn't talk about that may make future use of it, like beyond 7E7, otherwise why spend the money?

I think they plan on going forward with BWB sometime soon (10 yr tops) -- IF they go forward with this.
The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

"I think they plan on going forward with BWB sometime soon (10 yr tops) -- IF they go forward with this." - why not, BWB will definitely work for freighter while evacuation/windows/pressurization issues are very unclear for passenger version...

First the Super-Guppy, then the Beluga. What'll they call this? The Humpback? Ugliest thing I can imagine taking to the air!  Confused
