Boom Technology debuts supersonic jet in Centennial

Boom Technology has unveiled a full-size mockup of a supersonic passenger plane with the financial economics the Concorde lacked, the company said.

If all goes well in flight tests, the company said it will move ahead and build a full-size 45-seat aircraft, parked in a hangar of the Centennial Airport, which can travel 2.2 times faster than the speed of sound at a price on par with business-class tickets.

Boom Technology is a Denver-based startup company designing a supersonic aircraft to fly up to Mach 2.2 (1,451 mph, 1,261 kn, 2,335 km/h) which would be New York City to London in three hours and 24 minutes, at a proposed round trip cost of $5,000.
