Virgin and Boom want to bring back supersonic flights for $5,000 round-trip



A startup is trying to reinvent supersonic airline service 13 years after the Concorde’s last flight.

Boom has introduced an idea for a supersonic flight that will take passengers from New York to London in about three hours and 20 minutes.

The company hopes to fly its first prototype plane in 2017 and says commercial flights could begin within the next few years.
