Hi,

was that a really project to Boeing ?.

Yes. A Control Configured Vehicle project for a strategic bomber. Not much info on it, unfortunately. No dimensions have been foudn as yet.

A natural gas transport. Boeing designed a number of Really Big Airplanes for transporting natural gas back in the '70's.

Hi,

The Boeing designed aircraft with integral antena in 1960.
http://www.google.com/patents?id=plNEAAAAEBAJ&printsec=abstract&zoom=4&dq=boeing+design+of+airplane&num=100#PPA1958,M1

Note... this was at least a *somewhat* serious design. I've got drawings of it somewhere. I don't think that it had a Model number, though.

That second one is the famed "Hunchback of Mulkiteo" design when Boeing was looking for ways to increase the capacity of the 767 design (ultimately moving ahead with the 777 and the 767-400 designs). The nickname came from a Seattle surburb. From what I recall, airlines polled were very lukewarm at best with the idea of a hunchbacked 767......

Hesham, NOT Boeing AND North American, BUT Boeing North American, Inc.

Boeing North American (BNA), Inc. acquired this Seal Beach facility in late 1996 from North American Rockwell. The multi-building facility was used by Rockwell to build large defense and space hardware including Apollo launch vehicle stages. Boeing has two major divisions: commercial space (primarily airplanes), and defense and space. This Seal Beach facility was acquired to enhance the capabilities of the defense and space division.
