Boom Supersonic Introduces Aircraft That Travels 2X Faster Than Sound

Boom Supersonic unveiled its first prototype aircraft, the XB1, to introduce the world’s fastest passenger aircraft.

The prototype aircraft, which had no passengers, was unveiled at an event on October 7, but its technologies were showcased.

Blake Schulz, the company’s CEO said that the company is starting to move towards a supersonic future, and today they are together for a new era of air travel.

The XB1 uses three electric engines that provide a 12,000-pound thrust, while the long nose hides the runway view from the cockpit during landing, but the cameras make up for it.

The aircraft is designed for supersonic performance, Black School said.

The company’s main goal is to revive commercial supersonic flights that have not been seen since Concordia’s retirement.

The plane will be able to fly twice as fast as the speed of sound, which will cover the distance between London and New York in just 3 hours and 15 minutes, which is 14 hours on a normal flight.

Simply put, its flight between Lahore and Karachi will be enough to get passengers to their destinations in less than half an hour.

According to the company, light carbon fibre scans and some hardware will be 3D printed, which helps to reduce the cost of air travel.

The company also said that the aircraft will produce a soft sank boom and its engines will be quieter.

The first test of the aircraft will take place sometime next year.

For commercial flights, the aircraft will be seen flying in the air for the next decade at a speed of 1700 miles per hour.

It will be able to fly at an altitude of 60,000 to 70,000 feet, which will provide luxury 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 Overture, while the prototype variant will be called XB1.

The XB1 is not primarily a passenger plane, but rather a fighter jet with only one pilot.

It will also be much smaller in size than the Overture and is intended to test the technologies used on larger aircraft.
