BOOM. The supersonic airplane

I know this has been discussed on DDF but canít find the thread and I think it deserves one of its own.

This struck out to me as a huge development ď Leskinen said the economics should be about the same as a new 787. Boom is planning to carry out test flights in 2026 and to carry passengers before the end of the decadeĒ
Without much details divulged itís hard to judge how realistic that statement is but it definitely sounds like a promising development by looking at the core issue.
