Supersonische business jet krijgt steun van Boeing

February 8, 2019 -- Boeing werkt samen met startup Aerion Corporation uit Nevada om een business-jet te ontwikkelen die de luxe van supersonisch luchtreizen belooft terug te brengen, voor het eerst sinds het wegvallen van de Concorde 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.


21 days to go until 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 days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
