The calculation of sonic boom characteristics of the Boeing Model 2707 is described configuration geometry and pertinent aerodynamic data are detailed in the Aerodynamic Design Document, V2-B2707-3 sonic boom data, as related to airplane performance, are presented in the Airline Performance-GE, and Airline Performance-P and W Documents, V2-B2707-4 and -5. Consideration of sonic boom has been fundamental in the design of the B-2707. The configuration has been optimized to obtain the best sonic boom characteristics at all Mach numbers, commensurate with minimum drag, and structural weight considerations. This is evidenced by the fact that despite increases in fuselage size for improved passenger accommodations, the airplane essentially meets the FAA objectives for domestic and international operations.
