Boom Technology Unveils New Supersonic Jet Aircraft

Denver-based startup aerospace company, Boom Technologies, expects to start subsonic flight tests of its XB-1 supersonic demonstrator in late 2017.

Nicknamed “Baby Boom,” the engineering design prototype was unveiled at the company’s Centennial airport facility in Denver, Colorado, on November 15.

The supersonic airliner which Boom aims to certify for commercial service by 2023, is expected to carry up to 45 passengers.

At Mach 2.2, the XB-1 will fly 10% faster than the Concorde and could fly from New York to London in 3 hours and 25 minutes. Or fly from Los Angeles to Sydney in 6 hours, 45 minutes as opposed to the over 15 hours it currently takes saving almost 10 hours.

Virgin Atlantic Airways has already placed an optional order for 10 units of the aircraft. First test flight is planned for late 2017.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
