Boom - the Fastest Passenger Plane Ever

The race to bring supersonic travel back to the skies is well and truly on after a third group announced a project to create the fastest passenger plane ever at affordable prices.

Following on from projects announced by Nasa and a group of British Concorde enthusiasts, a company called Boom has announced plans for a supersonic jet of the same name which already has the backing of Sir Richard Branson.

It may be 13 years since Concorde made its final flight but the world of supersonic travel retains its allure. Boom’s supersonic jet is predicted to fly at Mach 2.2 - “2.6 times faster than any other [current] airliner” according to the company's website, and faster than Concorde’s Mach 2.0.

Current estimates for the price of a ticket on Boom are $5,000 (around £3,476) for a round-trip from London to New York which should take less than three-and-a-half hours.

For details, please visit and the website of Boom.
