Aerion has become the latest firm to join the race for a new Concorde as it revealed it has completed the first phase of design on the AS2.

AS2 will be a supersonic business jet – with hopes it will be hit speeds of Mach 1.8 and be able to fly between London and New York even faster than Concorde.

Engineers have promised the design, which has been worked-on with Lockheed Martin, will meet all regulations for modern air travel – leading to a “supersonic renaissance”.

And while AS2 is currently just a business jet, they hope it will be able to be scaled up into an airliner for commercial travel.

I Call Bull: Nope, calling double BULL on this, firstly it's nowhere near the size of the Concorde in its present design and "hoping" to upscale just doesn't cut it for me and secondly this is not even in actual production yet.
Dont get me wrong, although this seems like me grumbling i DO hope it succeeds but there's quite a few of these super sonic air travel claims and as yet NONE have actually got off the ground (see what i did there!)
