At the moment, airplanes are one of the fastest modes of transport, but this does not negate the fact that some flights take a very long time. It is logical that sooner or later a high-speed passenger plane should appear. Boeing decided not to wait for it to happen. The company showed what could be the planes in 20-30 years. Presumably, an innovative aircraft, will make flights at speeds exceeding the speed of sound 5 times.
The streamlined shape of the aircraft fuselage will make it possible to minimize the sound impact when overcoming the sound barrier. The liner also received airplane nose, outwardly similar to a huge needle. Most likely, the aircraft will work on cryogenic hydrogen fuel.
Airliner can not be called great. The presented concept of the aircraft will have both commercial and military applications.
This concept will not work soon. In this light, the prospects for hypersonic aircraft look rather vague. Of course, provided that Boeing is close to developing such a machine. At the moment, can use the only working hours, acquired during research. Hypersonic speeds greatly exceed the speed of sound in the atmosphere.
