February 8, 2019 -- Boeing is partnering with Nevada-based startup Aerion Corporation to develop a business jet that promises to bring back the luxury of supersonic air travel for the first time since Concorde retired in 2003.

Boeing said it will provide engineering, manufacturing and flight-test resources for Aerion’s AS2 jet, which is due to make its first flight in 2023.

The 12-seater plane is able to fly at speeds of up to Mach 1.4, or about 1,000 miles per hour – some 70 percent faster than today’s quickest business jets, according to Bloomberg News.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
