   Boeing has provided a glimpse of the future with the release of an image of its hypersonic passenger plane concept at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics conference in Atlanta this week. The concept image depicts a civilian aircraft capable of traveling at over five times the speed of sound is intended to give the public some idea of what air travel could be like 20 or 30 years from now.

   At the moment, hypersonic air travel is still in its infancy, with its only current examples being spacecraft leaving or returning to Earth, or experimental airframes for civilian or military research. However, it is a technology that shows significant promise and Boeing is interested not only in developing the basic mechanics of hypersonic aircraft, but also in exploring possible applications.

 

 

According to Boeing, the passenger aircraft concept could have commercial or military uses, but is just one of many concepts covering a wide range of applications the company is exploring for aircraft capable of speeds of Mach 5 (3,223 knots, 3,709 mph, 5,969 km/h) and above. No details about the concept were released, but it does show a passenger craft capable of carrying about 32 passengers plus crew, judging by the number of windows.
