Concorde rebooted – Luxury supersonic passenger jet in the works
Missed flying on the Concorde? Well cheer up, if everything goes well then you will soon be cruising over the Atlantic at almost double the speed of sound in a supersonic jet. To be developed by the Aerospace company Supersonic Aerospace International (SAI) the jet will be quieter than a passing car at 65dB at ground level and cruise at an altitude of 60,000 feet at speeds of Mach 1.6 to 1.8.
