Lets get this right - the "prize" is a ride in a simulator. :zzz:

Didn't bother to vote - don't like any of the names! If they want it to sell they should call it the Boeing Airbus :E ;)

Just read the small print under the entry form- "No purchase necessary"
That must be the punchline!

and the correct answer is . . . 797.

Gosh, I'm glad I don't have to buy one to enter.

Not going to bother anyway as the four options are crap:

Stratoliner, Dreamliner, eLiner (oh come ON...) or Global Cruiser which will almost certainly win but is mince nevertheless.

I'd personally call it the Boeing Buttercup. Not enough aeroplanes are named after flowers.

Seeing it has a fair bit of altitude in the drawing, how about the Shuttle?:rolleyes:

Titanic? Spruce Goose? Icarus? Eddie, the Eagle?

... so by flying this new aircraft we're doing something GOOD for the environment. Will it IMPROVE our environment ? Are they mental ? Save the whales !

The Boeing 7-Arse-7 Flying Treehugger.

I thought the correct answer would be B 787!

Am I missing something here Sir?

The new boeing 7-series... It's a bit weird looking no?
