webfi- Boom is bringing back commercial supersonic flight

Commercial travelers haven’t had a supersonic option since the Concorde stopped flying in 2003, ending 3.5 hour trips from New York to Paris. Boom thinks it can make supersonic passenger jet flight cost-effective for any airliner, across more routes.

    What boom is doing is making a real world version on one plane that only exists in ms flight simulator.

    The Syrotokey excalibur cruises at mach 2.2 at 70,000 feet and a range of about 5000 miles

    When Boom rolls their SST it will br the highest flying passenger plane ever built and the fastest at mach 2.2

    im a little TOO excited by this video. saving my pennies for my first BOOM flight to…ANYWHERE!

  • jaigm01 on July 13, 2020

    first bring super fast trains!

  • Kev Badger on July 15, 2020

    Concorde wasn’t viable because of jealousy of other countries, straight away they boycotted it, it was a technological success in aircraft, it didn’t require afterburners to attain supersonic speeds (super cruise) and could fly at 60,000 ft. The fuel crisis also put a stop to it and airlines wanted more for their gallon of fuel. There will only be one supersonic airliner that will be remembered, Concorde everything else will just be a toy!

    Я думаю, что это очередная тупиковая ветвь самолетостроения. Максимум доживет до ближайшего кризиса и закроется.

    which engines Boom is expecting to use ? there are currently no aircraft engines able of supersonic cruise with accepable fuel efficiency and noise…
    Totally new engines should be developped at huge cost for a very small market with no garantee of success.
    This Boom project looks very much like a trap for investors !
    Anyhow, with the current air transport crisis because of covid-19, it's not the right time for such a project…

  • Mr. Vector on August 4, 2020

    Believe me the majority of people won't care about supersonic flights (you could buy a MacBook for that price instead of flying "fast")

  • kuei12 on August 6, 2020

    Where is their kickstarter page? I want to invest and lose all my money when their first plane goes BOOM. Are these the same engineers that brought us the F-35?

  • thelatiosmaster on August 7, 2020

    Remember what really took supersonic away was the "sonic boom" problem.
    Did you fixed that too?

  • Un Citoyen _ on August 7, 2020

    We need a low cost Concorde.

  • Andrew Baumgartner on August 31, 2020

    Fly in a year…. 3 years later…NOTHING.

  • Tobee _gamer on September 4, 2020

    1:34 No, add the droop snoot

  • seanandlizzie on September 5, 2020

    Hope its a success just dont fit it with loads of technology that would be its undoing, follow concordes similar design and you wouldn't go wrong

  • robert damico on September 10, 2020

    In my opinion, Boom will not be allowed to fly the aircraft supersonic over land due to sonic boom concerns. (No pun intended).

    Also, like the Concord, it will have very limited range and will require secondary airports should flights be required to enter a holding pattern due to weather or flight delays for whatever reason.

    This is stupid

  • Joshua Hall a.k.a. Controlla on September 15, 2020

    Great video. ☺️

  • GDX on September 26, 2020

    I miss snoop droop

  • GingerMan 308 on September 27, 2020

    Ok but the population still doesn’t want to be hearing sonic booms every day

  • SRS on September 30, 2020

    I think it’s a cool concept but new tech can only change the viability so much. Supersonic flight is much much less fuel efficient and requires much different engineering. That makes for more expensive tickets, more expensive planes, and more dangerous planes. Even though the concorde was a lumbering analog machine I can’t see how they will truly overcome the challenge of commercial supersonic flight.

  • PAK SWISS on October 6, 2020

    concord was a great bird..its front look was amazing ..looks like fighter jet..

  • Daniel Purdy on October 7, 2020

    3 years ago they said they expect it to fly in about a year. In 2020 they are saying it’ll fly by 2021. So they are over a half decade late just flying the 1/3 scale model.

    I bet anything it won’t even be tested till 2023. Disappointed in the speed of innovation humans are having.

    CEO has spent more time losing weight than innovation.

  • Mark Plain on October 9, 2020

    With all the humour below… I just want to say. YOU GO GUYS !!!. I dreamt of flying in the Concorde when I was young. I dreamt of an amazing future thinking that what ever replaced the Concorde would be even more impressive. It was a very sad day for me when they mothballed the Concorde with no replacement. I hope to fly in your plane some day……

  • Weaslely Sherbeard on October 13, 2020

    Ok boomer

  • Nate Rosen on October 22, 2020

    What about the sonic boom, is that taken care of?
    because your company can't survive without the sonic boom problem solved.

  • Akash Sharma on November 24, 2020

    Looks like a fucking flying penguin only flys mach 1.3 🤣 made with fucking spare parts

  • Egorence on November 27, 2020

    do it droop the snoot tho?

  • lorenzo lohman on December 15, 2020

    Why isn't the concorde put back into service??? Why not put it back into the air?

  • Martin Stefanec on December 21, 2020

    4:224:24 is not Concorde but CCCP 👍👍TU-144 👍👍 also supersonic plane of the USSR

  • Wat, Inc. on December 30, 2020

    Boom is (maybe or maybe not) booming and hopefully won’t go boom

  • Isar on January 25, 2021

    I like the idea, but the routing concerns caught my eye. It wasn't the limited routing that hindered Concord, it was the regulations for the sonic boom as residential areas didn't want to deal with the sound.

    How will you overcome this issue?

  • Peter Walker on January 30, 2021

    Been talking about this for years believe it when it is flying

  • Pighood on March 4, 2021

    Never gonna happen. You can’t do anything about the sonic, boom.

  • Sinisa Balentovic on March 21, 2021

    This project is rubish and ugly aircraft!!!

  • EpicATrain on March 22, 2021

    Correction: Round Trip back in the 90's was between $7-8k. Inflation in 2017 was more like 12k, not 20k.

  • Riki 9653 on April 5, 2021

    Yay – Rich folks can get to business meetings & shopping quicker – destroying the environment along the way! Say, if you're a passionate engineer or business persyn, maybe work on transportation the masses can use.

  • italian guy on May 2, 2021

    I still like how the Shinkansen train can top speeds of 400km/h. If in the future we could reach speeds of up too 600-700km/h I could go from France to Poland in 4 hours

  • Carlos Cardenal on May 31, 2021

    Thar was 4 years ago, he said be ready in 2017.

  • Adrien Dubuisson on June 7, 2021

    Sounds like a lot of talk but little realization. I will not put a penny in such a stock. Scam !

  • Beam iOS🚀🌍 on June 8, 2021


  • Deadestify on September 19, 2021

    I personally am against this. Long-term common supersonic flight would ruin the ozone layer. Remember what happened when the Concorde first took off?

  • Barney Stinson on October 15, 2021

    Why would you make the nose pointed? The shockwave is going to cause a lot of heat at the nose compared to if you made the nose rounded off

  • kingofalldoughboys on December 2, 2021

    They will fail.
