Item Number: EST7289
In an era of aerospace marvels, the supersonic transport (SST) stood out. By the mid-1960s, multiple nations were pursuing the goal of an SST passenger jet. Imagine traveling from New York to L.A. in less than two hours - it was the verge of a revolution in air travel!
Estes is looking ahead with its own Low-Boom SST - a sleek, 30-inch long, delta-winged model rocket of the next generation of quiet, super-fast passenger jets. This Expert level kit is loaded with features, including intricate, balsa-constructed, underwing engine pods and a large sheet of detailed water-slide decals to complete the scale-like look. Launch and watch as the Low-Boom SST climbs to 400 feet on a C6-3, engine and gently returns under a large 15 inch parachute. The SST revolution might be on its way after all!
