Concorde 2.0: Supersonic jet with 1,700mph top speed readied for unveiling | Science | News


Boom expects the Overture – with an eventual top speed of Mach 2.2 – to fly in the mid-2020s and sell for $200 million (£158 million) each.

Customers all reportedly be set back $5,000 (£3,900) for a seat on the Overture.

Blake Scholl, CEO of Boom Supersonic, said: “You’ll be able to fly Overture for a quarter the price of a Concorde ticket, or about the same price you’d pay in business class today. That’s the most important thing.”

Unlike the Concorde, the Overture aims to have oversized windows.
