Probably a good article. Unfortunately hidden behind a paywall... :blush:

Really? I can access the entire article and I'm not a subscriber. Maybe because I'm outside the USA? Weird.

Awesome, is that a 3 holer.

 

The B727 could nearly fly at Mach 1.   (now that brings back good memories)

I was able to view it using an incognito browser window. I'm not impressed, for the same reason as the author. Near the end is a great question: "Since Lockheed Martin has traditionally shied away from civil markets, Aboulafia said the question is, will it “actually come through with the large pile of cash needed to bring [the jet] to market?”

Companies talk about "partnerships" all the time. Every 18-24 months there seems to be an announcement like this regarding investigating a supersonic airliner or bizjet. And until I see a company committing a nine figure sum to engineering or production, it's all just talk.

Cheers!

Always tantalising to see a new one.
It's a tight race to see who makes it to market ... last:

The Flying Car
The Supersonic Bizjet

There are others, but these two rotate into view almost on an annual basis.
It's gone a little quiet on the "Space Tourism" front too, I thought?

So will this be available on P3D v4.2?  Come on LM, make this happen!
