I was browsing through the photo database, and actually came across a few cockpit pictures of the mock-up of the Boeing 2707.

So, it got me interested about the whole history of the 2707. I was reading a bit about it on different websites, and navigated over to Wikipedia, which claims that there were 115x orders for the 2707 by different airlines, among which are PanAm, Northwest, TWA, American, Braniff, United, Eastern, Delta, Continental, etc etc.
My question is....does anyone know anything about those orders for 2707?? Were they ever official, or just signed LOI's?? Or....is that all BS posted to Wikipedia??
I'd be interested to know if airlines like PanAm and NWA actually placed official orders for the 2707, because the whole Boeing SST project has always fascinated me despite never having made it past mock-ups and initial designs.
Thanks for all replies!!
