The Boom Supersonic Overture
The Boom Supersonic Overture is a supersonic passenger airliner under development by Boom Supersonic, a company based in United States.
The Overture will be the next generation supersonic passenger jets, which will have a top speed of 1.7 MACH which is approximately 1304 mph and will be the highest flying passenger airliner on earth. The Overture will fly at altitudes up to 60,000 feet where you will see the Earth’s curvature and the darkness of space
The Overture Will Be The Fastest Airliner In The Skies – Reaching Speeds Of 1300 MPH
The new Boom Supersonic Overture will have a range of 4250 NN which is approximately 4888 miles and will fly London to New York in 3 hours and 30 minutes at speeds of up to 1304 mph (Mach 1.7)
This next generation supersonic passenger airliner will have many seating configurations available for airliners which accommodate between 65 and 88 passengers depending on the aircraft’s passenger configuration.
The Overture Will Fly Higher And Faster Than Any Of Passenger Airliner On Earth

Setting New Standards For Supersonic Comfort
The new supersonic overture has an option for an all-business class passenger configuration meaning that each seat will have a window, with plenty of room to get comfortable while cruising on the edge of space flying at supersonic speeds without feeling a thing.
Cost To Buy
To Buy a New Boom Supersonic Overture, you are looking at a price of upwards of $200 Million each, which seems to be pretty reasonable for a supersonic jet.
All-Business Class Configuration
An all-business class configuration can be chosen by airlines with more space to get comfortable on a supersonic jet with a window seat available for each passenger and you will be arriving at your destination in half the time. What’s not to love?
Those businessmen and women will fly on the new boom supersonic where time is money.
Fast Flying Comes At A High Price
The Boom Overture will fly at remarkable speeds. To achieve this, the Overture will be powered by three Rolls-Royce jet engines to push the aircraft through the sound barrier. This will require lots of energy to break the sound barrier – meaning more fuel is needed. Boom are dedicated to building a aerodynamic aircraft reducing the demand for fuel increasing efficiency.
United Airlines Orders 15 Supersonic Overtures
United Airlines became the first US airline to sign aircraft purchase agreement with Boom Supersonic with an order of 15 aircraft.
The Boom Supersonic Overture will be flying passengers by 2029, if things go to plan (which they often don’t) The road map above does look pretty reasonable for the time to build and test this supersonic flying machine.
Concorde is a Supersonic passenger airliner designed to fly at twice the speed of sound reaching speeds of up to Mach 2.2. Concorde could accommodate between 92-118 passengers and crew.
Concorde made its flight in 1969 and entered service in 1976 with Air France and British Airways.
Concorde’s Crash – The End Of The Supersonic Era
Tuesday, 25 July 2000, at 16:44:31 local time (UTC 14:44:31), During take-off Concorde ran over an engine strip from a DC-10 on the runway, blowing a tire which hit the underside of the fuel tank with great force rupturing the fuel tank which ultimately lead to the crash of Concorde.
Concorde was retired October 24th 2003
Supersonic Travel Is Making A Comeback
The Boom Supersonic Overture will serve passengers in 2029 and will build a new era of supersonic travel, with hope more manufactures build supersonic jets. But, good things take time.
