Fly from London to New York in 2.5 hours: Radical supersonic concept plane has a top speed of 2,300mph and can take off and land like a helicopter

Imagine going to London for a weekend and actually having time to enjoy the infamous British city. Well, Oscar Viñals designed a futuristic plane that can reach Mach 3 (approximately 2,300 mph) and fly from NYC to London in only two hours and 30 minutes.

Named ‘Flash Falcon‘, the aircraft could comfortably seat 250 passengers leaving behind the most annoying thing about the famous ‘Concorde’: the space between the seats.

The designer says it can fly at three times the speed of sound!

 Viñals also believes that, ‘This aeroplane would belong to a hypothetical generation that would be equipped with technology based on fusion energy – the future green energy – which today can only be found under development, but in the next 15 years it could become a feasible reality, capable to generate great amounts of electric energy without the use of “contaminant” materials.’

In addition to this, the plan can take of and land as a helicopter.
