PostSubject: Supersonic jets: Nasa plans to build a new 'quieter' plane that could halve flight times   Mon Jul 31, 2017 9:21 pm

For all its reputation as a miracle of motion at the forefront of all things travel, supersonic aviation is both mired in the past and weighed down by a future laden with question marks.



Not since Concorde was removed from service in October 2003 has a commercial airliner flown at beyond the speed of sound. And with the retirement of the great Anglo-French jet, the concept of soaring through the air at faster than 1224 km/h has increasingly become a fragment of yesteryear - a ghost of some golden age that is deemed unlikely to return.

Part of the issue with supersonic flying is just how noisy it is. Famously, a plane breaking the sound barrier provokes a "sonic boom" - a cacophonous whip-crack which, if it erupts close enough to the ground, can cause windows to break and complaints to be issued.
