Question[edit]

Is Trans Am an airline? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Eric Shalov (talkcontribs)

In miniature[edit]

Uh, Charles A. Lindbergh was a vocal opponent of the SST. Are you saying that a company called Lindbergh made a model?

There was/is a plastic model making company named Lindbergh. No clue if Lucky Lindy had anything to do with it, or if the name was a complete coincidence. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.35.113.120 (talk) 06:47, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Error Regarding Boeing B733-390[edit]

The Boeing B-733-390 was a swing-wing aircraft that was very much a narrow-body. It's swing-wing did not blend into the tail when fully swept to form a delta, though it did have a large tail-plane they by no means merged, and it's engines were mounted under the glove The plane you are talking about is the B-2707-100. It had a swing wing with the wing blending in with the tail to form a delta/arrow in flight and had it's engines mounted under the enlarged tail. The design however was also a narrowbody, it had a fuselage width of 6-abreast (3-3) at it's widest with most of the fuselage being 5-abreast (3-2)

The early B-2707-200 model was the design that had the 7-abreast (2-3-2) fuselage-width. Originally the B-2707-200 was the same size as the B-2707-100 (306-feet), differing in the shape of it's tailplane and wider-fuselage. As time went on, the design was lengthened by 12-feet to increase it's passenger capacity. Aeroelastic problems that developed required a canard to be added.

outcry on environmental impact[edit]

This section still lacks any source, and was therefore removed. I did research and could not find any material re the matter. Who ever finds something substantial is welcome to revert the deletion. 88.67.176.39 (talk) 12:49, 8 February 2009 (UTC)

Googling "sonic boom sst" immediately turned up all sorts of cogent hits. Maury Markowitz (talk) 17:40, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Cruise flight[edit]

Can someone write in the article whether the afterburner of Boeing 2707 should be activated in cruise flight - or only activated for climb and acceleration like by Concorde?--Uwe W. (talk) 17:53, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

was developed? no it wasn't.[edit]

The very first sentence of the article is wrong. "The Boeing 2707 was developed"...no it wasn't. It was an American failure. Never developed. 93.219.169.162 (talk) 18:13, 26 September 2014 (UTC)
