Supersonic Jet Capable of Reaching 7242 Km/H Could Revolutionise Air Travel

This hypersonic X-51A WaveRider jet may look like something out of a fictional TV show but could drastically cut journey times in the future.

The aircraft, which belongs to the US military can accelerate to a top speed of 7242 km/h in seconds and is capable of travelling from the New York to London in under an hour.

Due to be tested over the Pacific Ocean yesterday, the craft will be dropped from a B52 Bomber attached to its wing.

Lasting 300 seconds, the aircraft was dropped from a height of 50,000ft with a rocket booster lifting it to 70,000ft.

Funded by both NASA and the US Military it is estimated the Waverider programs cost around $132million, MailOnline reported.

If the project gets off the ground, the jet would be capable of travelling at five times the speed of sound.
