Supersonic jet: Journey from Karachi to London will be possible in 3 hours

The journey from London to New York on a regular ship takes about 7 hours, which is a great development as it can take weeks or even months to complete the journey by ship.

The long journey from Karachi to London will be possible in three hours by Super Sonic jet which is being developed by a company called Boom and has been named the world’s fastest civil aircraft.

The Boom XB1, a smaller version of the aircraft, will be tested sometime next year, with manufacturers claiming that the flight from London to New York could be completed in less than three-and-a-half hours.

The supersonic jet will be available for commercial flights over the next decade and will fly at 1700 mph while its prototype will be part of a test flight in 2021.

In simple words, its flight between Lahore and Karachi will take passengers to their destinations in less than half an hour.

The design of the aircraft being worked on by the American company is very similar to that of Concordia. It will be able to fly at an altitude of 60,000 to 70,000 feet, with luxurious facilities for passengers.

The company has been invested in by Japan Airlines and Virgin Group, and both companies have already placed orders for a total of 30 aircraft. The commercial version will be called the overture, while the prototype type will be called the XB1.

The company says that a B1 will be officially introduced on October 7, 2020, and will fly in 2021.
The XB1 is not primarily a passenger aircraft but will be similar to a fighter jet with a single pilot capacity. It will be much smaller in size than the overture and its purpose will be to test the technologies used on larger aircraft.

the company said that with the XB1, they will show how we are preparing to bring back supersonic jet and they want to secure the future of supersonic aircraft while making them environmentally and economically stable.

Work will begin on the Overture, which will be tested in the mid-2020s and will fly for passengers by 2030.
