Boeing was selected, controversially, to build the US SST in December 1966.
They had a very radical swing wing design, Lockheed-their supersonic experience making them the presumed front runners, had a more conventional tailed delta design.
|Quoting N234NW (Reply 8):|
The model shown is therefore completely unlike the Boeing 2707, but if in 1964, that is not surprising.
But it's still fascinating and thanks for posting it.

It took me a while to see it, but you're quite correct. What's more, the images I have now and hope to be able to post are very illuminating.
