The presentation of the new design of the Hyper Sting supersonic jet aircraft, which will surpass the legendary Concorde in speed and size, was held. The Sun.
The Hyper Sting is a concept aircraft that will be able to take passengers from London to New York in just 80 minutes in the near future.
It will fly at 2486 miles per hour - twice as fast as the Concorde.
With a length of 100 meters and a wingspan of 51 meters, the airliner is almost twice the size of its predecessor.
It was designed by the Spanish designer Oscar Viñals. He says that 170 passengers will be able to enjoy the journey aboard the HyperString.
“Concorde was a brilliant example of technology, a noble experiment. But it created too many emissions and too much noise, and it was prohibitively expensive to run, Vinyals said. “A new era of supersonic flight may be just around the corner. But there are challenges to overcome when it comes to flying faster than the speed of sound. Today there are several projects for a new era of supersonic flight from various private and public initiatives. Some of them are under implementation and may become a real concept in a few years.”
Vinyals added that the name of the Hyper Sting was influenced by the shape of the aircraft.
“The fuselage is shaped like a large stinger with a very sharp nose that has a forward airflow control function to redistribute it over the center section and wings.”
