Boom, a Denver-based company, claims it can build a better SST and fly you across the Atlantic for what today's business class ticket would cost. If memory serves, that's about what it cost when the Concorde flew the route.
She completed the flight strapped to her seat after another customer complained she kept getting up to stretch her legs after "only two glasses of wine," but is it possible there's another side to this story?
Sir Richard Branson says Virgin will partner with Boom to build and test plane to succeed where Concorde failed – ‘this lets you commute’ across oceans. Hope this works out better than his (not yet) rocket flights.
