Airbus CEO Tom Enders stated "With flying, you don't need to pour billions into concrete bridges and roads".

Boom!

This is Boom. It's a prototype for a new supersonic passenger plane that will be able to fly from New York to London in 3 1/2 hours. That's slightly quicker than the Concorde SST used to fly. Boom is using existing technologies to keep production costs low, and the business plan calls for keeping the cost about the same as a normal business class flight. Boom is already in development, and is slated for test flights in 2017.
