SonicStar Jet - Successor To The Concorde
The successor to the Concorde ..... flying at Mach 3.6 ! Twice as fast as
The SonicStar jet !
This plane, will be twice as fast as Concorde, with a top speed of Mach 3.6.
Plans for 20-seat craft were unveiled at The Paris Air Show. HyperMach claims,
its SonicStar aircraft will be so quick that travelling from London to New York
will take just two hours ! A trip from New York to Sydney, meanwhile, will be
cut by a staggering 75 per cent - from 20 hours on a commercial airliner to just
five hours. A jet that can fly from London to Sydney in three and a half hours
could rob Concorde of its title as the fastest-ever passenger plane.
Plans have been unveiled for the HyperMach SonicStar, a business jet which will
be capable of a top speed of 2,664 mph twice as fast as Concorde. It will fly at
62,000 ft, allowing passengers to see the curvature of the earth. HypeMach chief
executive Richard Lugg, wants the plane in the skies within ten years, and has
already secured funding from the Department of Trade and Industry, which has
agreed to support the company in Britain .
