Historical Note: Boeing Model 2707

Boeing Model 2707 was Boeing's design for a supersonic transport (SST) aircraft. It was developed under a government contract in the 1960s to compete with the British and French Concorde. The contract was cancelled in 1971 when the U.S. Sentate rejected further funding. The cancelled contract resulted in major layoffs at Boeing and had a severe economic impact on the city of Seattle, Washington.
