The Return of Supersonic Travel

While the Concorde jet was an engineering marvel and a massive feat in aviation technology, it was a little too ahead of its time. A new wave of companies is looking to revisit supersonic transportation with jets designed for the future of travel. Designed, built and available in the near future, the N+2 jet by Lockheed Martin will be able to take you from New York City to Los Angeles in just 2.5 hours. Of course, time is money, so the closest most of us will get to these jets is seeing them on the runway.
