Concordeの就航から早50年、次世代の超音速機のお目見えです。 Sonic Boom(この場合は、音速の衝撃波のことですが)どう克服できているのでしょうか？
(CNN) — Over 50 years after Concorde first took to the skies, a brand new supersonic jet is preparing for lift off.
Denver based start-up Boom Supersonic has announced it will roll out XB-1, a 1:3 scale prototype of its upcoming supersonic commercial jet Overture, on October 7, with test flights beginning in 2021.
The move will help to pave the way for the first commercial supersonic flights since the legendary delta-wing passenger airliner made its last flight in 2003.
"XB-1 is the first step in bringing supersonic travel back to the world," Blake Scholl, founder and CEO of Boom Supersonic, said in a statement on the company's website.
