Description
This is a rare copy of Boeing's promotional film promoting the SST (Super-Sonic Transport). The SST was to be built by Boeing in cooperation with General Electric and the US Government to go head-to-head with the percieved economical threat of the Concord SST and the Soviet TU-144 SST. Mostly animated, the film details the reasons why the United States needed to build an SST of its own. It talks about negative gold flow from our economy and how the foriegn interests would steal business from the USA with their SSTs. The narrator is quite dramatic in the portrayal of problems if we didn't build the SST and pointed out the economical benefits to the entire country if we did build it. It puts on quite a selling job in its promotion of the USA SST program.

The program was eventually cancelled due to cost considerations and the realization of the costs, environmental impacts and restrictions that got imposed on the Concord and the TU-144, thus limiting their encroachment into very many air traffic markets.

The film is in very good shape and has held its color very well considering its age. It is approx. 8-9 minutes in length.

Winning bidder to pay seller by cashier's check or money order no later than 10 days after close of auction. Buyer will pay shipping and insurance charges which will be agreed to (via email or phone) and added to bid price. Items will be shipped as soon as possible after payment is received and verified.

Binding contract.
     Placing a bid is a binding contract in many states. Do not bid unless you intend to buy this item at the amount of your bid.

Proxy bidding for all bids
     Please bid the maximum amount you are willing to pay for this item. Your maximum amount will be kept secret; eBay will bid on your behalf as necessary by increasing your bid by the current bid increment up until your maximum is reached. This saves you the trouble of having to keep track of the auction as it proceeds and prevents you from being outbid at the last minute unless your spending limit is exceeded. (See an example of proxy bidding). Also, in case of a tie for high bidder, earlier bids take precedence. And, keep in mind that you cannot reduce your maximum bid at a later date. Unless otherwise noted, bids are in U.S. dollars.
     If you have bid on this item before, note that your new bid must be greater than your previous bid.
