nucklehead Posted June 24, 2015 Share Posted June 24, 2015 The Air Force have announced plans to produce hypersonic planes that are capable of crossing countries in a matter of minutes by the year 2023. The planes, which will initially be military in nature, will eventually be made into commercial passenger planes that will be capable of travelling from New York to London in just one hour. Experimental unmanned aircraft developed for the U.S. Air Force have already gone hypersonic during tests off the Southern California coast, flying at more than five times the speed of sound. The Air Force said Friday the X-51A WaveRider flew for more than three minutes under power from its exotic scramjet engine and hit a speed of Mach 5.1 last year. http://yournewswire.com/plans-for-hypersonic-planes-that-travel-new-york-london-in-one-hour/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
