Branson's New Project Will Get You From NYC to London in 3.5 Hours

Sir Richard Branson seems to always have something up his sleeve. A couple of weeks ago we told you about his new cruise line called Virgin Voyages, and this week the innovator debuted the brand’s first 40-seat supersonic jet. The billionaire unveiled the protoype (nicknamed Baby Boom) during a private event at Centennial Airport in Denver yesterday.

In partnership with Boom Technology, Branson’s aircraft is projected to be the fastest civil aircraft ever made. If all goes as planned, the jet will be able to fly from London to New York in 3.5 hours. At the event, guests got to meet Baby Boom, a XB-1 Supersonic Demonstrator and smaller version of the 40-seat jet said to be ready by 2020.
