    Interesting but We’ll not see passengers boarding a commercial supersonic aircraft before 2025 I reckon…

    Airbus is working with a US firm called Aerion to build its own supersonic jet that can fly from London to NEC in three hours

    pfft, you could drive that in 2 hours…

    If at all, what with video conferencing/webex technology.

    Can’t see that ever happening as a commercial proposition. Private jet for the super-rich… maybe.

    Not sure why but saying “the Concorde” always grates too. Should just be “Concorde” IMO.

    have a tri-jet configuration with an engine on top of the aircraft and two others under each wing

    So, is it three engines or five? – make your mind up!

    that can fly from London to NEC in three hours

    That’s rubbish – even our pitiful trains can do it quicker

    Ah – I understand, now.

    There is some good maths in this article.

    Aerion’s AS2 jet will fly at 1217mph making it almost as fast as the Concorde, which flew at 1350mph
