The Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) is a 2.5 m telescope which will fly in a Boeing 747SP, commencing operation in late summer 2004. SOFIA is a joint American/German project and for most of this decade it will be the largest far-infrared telescope. SOFIA will have a suite of instruments available to the astronomical community, including the High-resolution Airborne Wide-band Camera (HAWC) - its facility far-infrared camera.
