Do you know what commercial aircraft/plane with fastest speed? Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Gulfstream and supported by NASA has made a supersonic commercial jet aircraft (code X-54) that anyone can buy later. X-54 aircraft can fly at speeds to 2,500 mph (about 4,000 km / h), which beat the Concorde plane that only had a speed of 1350 mph.
With that speed, when we fly from London to Sydney usually takes 20 hours and 10 minutes, with the X-54 we only takes 4 hours. Wow, very fast. X-54 also claimed that it’s not more noisy than Concorde, so it can fly to any country.
X-54 able to carry 12 passengers only and it is expected to cost about $ 80 million. According to the plan, X-54 will soon be marketed in Europe and the Middle East with the slogan ‘To the USA and back in a working day.’
