Didn't one of those boeing 797s just land at Chicago???  ::rofl:: I heard that the 1000 passengers were very happy with the flight. The engineers say that the lift to drag ratio increased over 50% when they use the blended wing design.  ;D  ;D  ::rofl:: ::rofl:: ::rofl:: ::rofl::
I SAW THAT TOO !! ::unbelieveable::
The mayor was on hand to greet them when they landed at Miegs Field--what a pro-aviation guy  ::banghead::

Ok, then I'll tell you.
I have to admit that it was pretty hard and I bet I'd given up way earlier if I had to find out.
It's a Sukhoj S-84.
I found it here. Unfortunately this page is in German and I cannot link to the article directly, but I have holidays coming up, if anyone is interested, I might just translate it and post it here or something.

Actually I think it is either British or American... Lockheed of some kind maybe?

Franz: I did try to search Sukhoi in many different ways and I never found that thing.
Gil: I never heard of that company which explains why I never found that either.
But now I can catch up since I know both of the new ones (plus the japanese one Jim thought of) :D
