Ever since the days the last days of the Concorde, people have been longing for a return to a commercial form of supersonic travel.

A group of ex-Boeing and NASA employees have just revealed that they're going to build a new airline that will be able to fly between London and New York in just 3.4 hours

They'll have the first prototype by the end of 2017 and the plane will travel at 1,500 mph. The only issue we'd have with the whole concept it the name and branding. Would people really want to fly on an airline called Boom? Strange. 

You can check out all the spec here.
