United Airlines announces a Fully Electric Plane as well as a Supersonic Jet!

By-Tay



Hey guys! Are you excited to be able to fly like the Concorde again? Are you excited to be able to fly with little to no impact on the environment? Well, you will be able to since United Airlines is buying 15 to 50 supersonic jets from Boom Supersonic! United is also buying electric jets! They will both start by 2026. The future is here!


The new Supersonic Jet by Boom should look and be similar to its predecessor, the Concorde.



Well, you are probably asking yourself why supersonic planes are so special now. Well, before the Concorde was discontinued and retired, there were complaints about noise. This is because when you go supersonic, you break through the sound barrier. This causes what is known as the “Sonic Boom”. This plane will be quieter because if supersonic travel is our future, we would have to hear booms in the air constantly, so they are making it quieter. But they have a competitor; NASA, the really cool American Space Company.


Now the electric plane



United is ordering 100 of these 19-seat planes. They are fully electric, with the fan thingy engines, not the jets.


That’s all for today!
