Concorde what? Airbus has a new patent for an even faster supersonic aircraft
Concorde is widely known for being the fastest commercial aircraft ever created. Ever since its retirement in 2003, a lot of parties have been interested in recapturing that supersonic commercial travel experience. Among such parties is Airbus SAS, a well-known civil aircraft manufacturer.
It happened earlier this year, July more specifically, when Airbus received a patent for an aircraft that could travel from New York to London in just an hour. Interestingly, this is not the initial design proposed by Airbus. Prior to filing the patent, Airbus had already proposed a plan to build a supersonic commercial aircraft for the first time.
