The Antipode Can Travel from London to New York in 11 Minutes

A new aircraft design concept has been revealed that could see passengers of the future flying at nearly 12 times faster than Concorde – that's fast enough to get you from London to New York in just 11 minutes.

There seems to be a new hypersonic jet announced every other week promising the dreamy prospect of long-haul international travel that takes mere minutes to complete, but the Antipode from designer Charles Bombardier is the most salivating yet.

Powered by rocket boosters for take-off, the Antipode would climb to 40,000 feet at Mach 5. From here, its wings would detach and fly themselves back to base – that's impressive in itself – then the pilot kicks it up a gear by igniting its supersonic engines to hit Mach 24 – or speeds of 12,427 miles an hour.
