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.

Concorde

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.

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. As a result, a tyre was blown which hit the underside of the fuel tank. The force was so great, it ruptured a fuel tank. That ultimately leads to the crash. Concorde was retired on October 24th 2003
