News: NYC to London in 30 Minutes?

Screen-Shot-2015-11-02-at-2.38.19-PM

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.

So far the plans are far from becoming a reality for customers, but other airlines are gauging the safety and profitability of bringing back supersonic travel. Boeing has plans for a Concorde 2 that may get passengers from NYC to London in about one hour.
