The White House is dreaming of an Air Force One supersonic for the president
In a dynamic world and in a century of speed, we keep wondering why Concorde and Tu-144 they had no descendants. After the world's great powers demonstrated that a passenger supersonic could be built, the aviation industry gave up these types of aircraft in favor of money.
It is true that the 2 supersonic passenger aircraft were an economic disaster, but that does not mean that there can be no other more efficient and modern aircraft to carry out the supersonic mission.
For example, the The White House dreams of such a supersonic plane for one of the most powerful presidents in the world. It would be nice to see Air Force One at supersonic speeds, right? Hermeus is an aerospace company eager to develop a Mach 5 supersonic aircraft. Such a plane could fly the distance from New York to London in just 90 minutes.
He also entered the fight for the supersonic Air Force One Exosonic, a startup designed to develop a supersonic aircraft by 2030. Exosonic could build a silent supersonic passenger aircraft that can fly over land and water without creating loud noise when overcoming the sound barrier. At the same time, it could carry up to 70 passengers.
Boom Supersonic is another important player who entered the race for the White House supersonic aircraft. Boom is preparing for flight XB-1 (also known as Baby Boom), a scale-built prototype ⅓ of the Overture plane that Boom intends to market. The final product will be able to reach a speed of Mach 2.2 (approximately 2.710 kilometers per hour), faster than Concorde.
A beautiful dream, isn't it?
