News: NYC to London in 30 Minutes?

Gone are the days of Concorde, when passengers made a transatlantic crossing in just under four hours, but super-sonic commercial jets may be making a comeback. A new plane, in a patent phase, may be able to transfer passengers from NYC to London in about a half hour. The Skreemr was created by Charles Bombardier and Ray Mattison hope to one day use technology that compresses the incoming air for engine combustion (instead of a tank on board). The technology will then propel the lightweight plane to a jaw dropping 7,6723 mph–exceeding Mach 10.

The plans so far would see the plane hold around 75 passengers.
