We are going to go Mach 5 baby.

Boeing is looking to develop high speed transportation for both public and military applications.

Hypersonic aircraft are capable of traveling at speeds of Mach 5 and beyond. Mach 5 is about five times the speed of sound, or 3,806 mph (6,125 km/h) at sea level. NASA's space shuttles, for comparison, traveled at Mach 25 when re-entering the Earth's atmosphere. The U.S. military has tested hypersonic weapons that hit Mach 20 in the past. [Supersonic!

Boeing unveiled its hypersonic passenger plane concept Tuesday (June 26) in Atlanta at the 2018 Aviation and Aeronautics Forum hosted by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Sign me up. I missed out on the Concord. I would love to get breaking the sound barrier off my bucket list.

It's going to be a sin when Boeing moves their operations to Poland...

It's a glorified research project with a time horizon of several decades at best.

Maybe they'll have financing available to pay for the tickets. The Concorde was incredibly steep in price.

Yeah, State of WA and the unions have been doing their very best to see that happens. Probably will stay in NC.
