XB-1 supersonic plane

Graphic News

November 16, 2016 -- Aerospace company Boom has unveiled a prototype of a supersonic passenger jet that aims to be the next generation Concorde. The XB-1 demonstrator, or “Baby Boom”, is a one-third scale version of the full production model intended to be ready by 2020. If successful, Boom’s airliner will fill a gap in the air transport industry that has been unfilled since British Airways retired the final Concorde in 2003.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
