SFNE's 2002 coaster is a B&M flying coaster!!!!!!!

Go to www.coasterforce.com and click on the wild rumours section towards the bottom of the website. If you look closely, the track of SFNE's 2002 coaster is 100% identical to the track of AIR at Alton Towers. So, obviously this SFNE's 2002 coaster is neither a stand-up or floorless, but flying! How can I prove this? There's a picture showing the differences between B&M floorless track and B&M flying track! SFNE is so lucky to get one of these coasters!

SFNE is definitely not getting a B&M flying coaster. First off, look at the layout of the SFNE coaster compared to the layout of Alton Towers's Air. The layouts have no similarities and share no characteristics. SFNE's coaster looks like standard coaster with the normal inversions and turns and all that stuff while AIR has many unique characterists and does not have a traditional layout (more traditional, though, than X and some other outragous coasters).

Uh....what's shown in both pictures of AIR track and SFNE 2002 track are the STATION track.  Look at the station and lift hill track for ANY B&M, and you'll see the enlarged box with different ties.  It's just the way they do it.

Plus the SFNE track has regular V-shaped ties whereas AIR station track has straight ties. AIR trains don't need V track as they have road wheels ontop & underneath, therefore the central beam doesn't need to 'ride' in the 'V,' know what I mean?
