Can you imagine flying from NYC to London and landing in 3 hours and 15 minutes? Meet BOOM. Breakthrough aerodynamic designs, state of the art engine technology, and advanced composite materials enable an ultra fast airliner to be as efficient and as affordable as business class in today’s subsonic wide-body airliners. In fact, it is 2.6 times faster than any other airliner. The Concorde was Mach 2.
BOOM is Mach 2.2. BAM! 1451 mph to be exact. And that NYC-London trip will be priced at about $2500 each way.
Engineering development of XB-1 ("Baby Boom") is proceeding rapidly, with aerodynamics defined, systems ground tested, and initial structural components in fabrication. Vehicle assembly starts shortly, with first flight planned for late 2017.
Sir Richard Branson will probably create his own supersonic fleet airline and call it _ _ _ _? Reach out to me on social media and tell me what he should name it.....
