Re: American Airlines orders Boom Overture aircraft

My hunch is that if Boom can build and fly their demonstrator, they will be bought out by a bigger manufacturer to carry the project to completion. Somebody on Twitter made a similar point - Boom needs at least $8B in capital if it is going to be taken seriously, but then again, the CSeries/A220 wa...
