supersonic jets coming back soon

Virgin has a prototype commercial supersonic jet that it plans to test soon. One thing on my bucket list has always been to take a trans-Atlantic cruise to Europe and then a supersonic jet back.

The manufacturing team for Branson’s Virgin Galactic company is working with Boom Supersonic to test a prototype next year of a passenger plane that can fly at Mach 2.2, more than twice the speed of a typical commercial jet…

Instead of spending seven hours and paying up to $5,500 for a flight from New York to London on a Boeing 747, travelers can spend about $2,500 for a three-hour flight to cross the Atlantic on a supersonic jet, according to Boom.
