Boeing is developing an aircraft capable of travelling at almost 4,000mph – up to five times the speed of sound. It travels at almost three times the speed of Concorde and could slash the flight time of a trip to New York to just two hours.
From London to New York in just two hours !
The jet is not yet been named, but may reach the incredible speed by cruising at 95,000 feet where the air is much thinner than at the usual jetliner cruising height of 30,000 feet. But we will have to wait a few years yet. The aircraft won’t be ready for service for at least 20 years.
The concept jet was unveiled at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Aviation 2018 conference in Atlanta – and will also be shown off at the Farnborough air show next month. Capable of getting across the Pacific in just three hours, it could bring back an age of regular super-fast travel that ended when Concorde.
