I called this aircraft the Boeing Model 902 Song Bird, but I need to give some background to its story. It is a stretched version (literally speaking) of the real-life Boeing Model 853 Quiet Bird from the 1960s, a super secret project that didn't go past the mock-up stage.

As opposed to most of my aircraft work which consists in photo editing only, this particular picture features my own artwork as painted over of the original diagram (see below right for original drawing and my stretched version of it, which served as a basis for the color illustration).
