Provenance This is a model of Boeing's proposed Super Sonic Transport (SST) after the "variable-sweep wing" announced by Boeing in June 1966 was abandoned. In October 1968, a tailed delta-fixed wing version of the SST was selected for continued development. The new design was also smaller, with 234 seats.

The American SST was originally intended to carry 250 passengers (more than twice as many as the Concorde) and fly at Mach 2.7-3.0. Delta ordered three of the aircraft from Boeing in 1964, but government funding stopped in 1971, and the Boeing SST project was closed.
