COMMERCIAL SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT PROGRAM. PHASE II-A. COMPREHENSIVE REPORT. VOLUME V-A BOOK 2. AERODYNAMICS.
BOEING CO RENTON WA AIRPLANE DIV
Performance data are presented for the Boeing Model 733-290 Intercontinental, and Model 733-291 Domestic variable-sweep, commercial supersonic transport. Complete data are given to show the effects of weight, speed, altitude, power setting, and temperature so that airline operational and route analysis studies may be made. These data augment the basic performance given in Book One of this volume. Payload-range examples are shown at the maximum sonic boom overpressures of 2.5 psf for the intercontinental airplane and 2.0 psf for the domestic airplane. Both have a space-limited payload of 52,865 pounds. A performance summary is shown for nominal payload of 43,000 pounds. The Intercontinental, Model 733-290, has a range of 3525 nautical miles 43,000-pound payload with a climb overpressure of 2.5 psf. However, the overpressure can be reduced to 2.3 psf with a loss of only 40 nautical miles, giving a range of 3485 nautical miles 4010 statute miles. Trades between range and sonic boom are shown.
