Sounds unbelievable, right?
However, according to a company based in England’s Oxfordshire, they are working on creating a hyper-sonic passenger plane that can zip from Mumbai to London in an hour!
Yes, we will soon bid adieu to long, leg-numbing flights all the way to one of our favourite European cities. Touchdown to the English capital in 60 minutes flat is all set to be a reality.
According to reports, this hyper sonic aircraft will be able to fly at a mind-boggling speed of 3800 miles per hour!
The company claimed that extreme heat build-up inside engines made it difficult for engineers to construct hyper sonic air-planes. The company has now, however, positively tested an engine cooling system. This new technology will support flying at Mach 3.3 and further testing should make it possible to reach Mach 5 or even higher.
But many experts are claiming that these hyper sonic plane tickets won't be cheap. The lavish air-plane could only be afforded by celebs and the crazy rich.
Sigh! A traveller can still dream, right?
