Today's Wall St. Journal has an article on page A3 (of the Western
Edition) saying that Boeing has cancelled plans to build two larger
derivatives of the 747 (the -500X and -600X) due to escalating costs
and insufficient orders from customers.

Oddly, www.boeing.com, which usually is very current with regard to
press releases, has no trace of what the WSJ reported as a late-night
announcement on Monday.
