    Holy Crap! I gotta get me one of them! Wonder if they have an "easy" payment plan on that?

    Supposedly Boeing's 797 - the plane to come out AFTER the 787. Hey, guess the A380 needs a competitor, right? .

    Looks like a 747 texture warped around a model to me.

    Interesting looking shape. Are Boeing moving towards a flying wing?

    Hang on, because it's coming!

    One day we'll have "cruise ships" of the air, complete with private
    rooms, ballroom dancing, swimming pools and my favorite, the
    endless buffet.

    Your pilot will not be on board, he'll be sitting at a computer
    console in India, China or where ever the airline can find the
    cheapest labor.

    You'll be able to park your car on the lower deck with the
    18 wheel tractor trailers and cargo containers, then go
    upstairs into a world where your every want is catered to.

    I'm sorry to say that the picture is a fake ... it is a conceptual picture from a "Popular Science" article. Read about it here on snopes.

    http://www.snopes.com/photos/airplane/boeing797.asp

    --------------
    Extract from the snopes article:

    Although Boeing may someday introduce a commercial airliner designated with the number 797, and although the company's advanced research and development unit may be researching the potential of blended-wing-body aircraft design for military applications, Boeing is not currently developing a blended-wing aircraft for commercial use, nor does the image displayed represent any aircraft (or prototype thereof) designed or produced by that company.

    The image is a conceptual picture from a "Popular Science" article about the future of aviation (one which proved so popular that it was made available for purchase in poster form) and has been circulated since at least early 1996 in fictitious articles proclaiming it to be Boeing's response to competition from the Airbus A380 in the commercial airliner business.
