BOEING has unveiled a new hypersonic airliner capable of flying from New York to London in two hours – and that is nearly three times faster than Concorde.
The unnamed aircraft is theoretically capable of flying at speeds of Mach 5 – which is nearly 4,000mph. Boeing’s new plane would be able to cruise at 95,000ft, which is also 30,000ft higher than Concorde. It is estimated the aircraft would be able to cross the Atlantic in two hours, and the Pacific in just three. – Daily Star
The proposed aircraft is said to be larger than a business jet but smaller than a 737.
