Supersonic flights didn’t just die in the beginning of the 21st century, when the Concorde last model was introduced, but there was no replacement to be seen. The last Concorde was seen in the year 2003 where no further discussion was there in the market majorly in the year, until Elon Musk, the co-founder of electric car Tesla, decided to launch one of the supersonic flight, which could take form as the ultimate form of transport.
Before we get into further discussion, let us discuss what Supersonic flight is.
Supersonic aircraft or Supersonic flight is used to transport passengers by the medium of air at a speed greater than the speed of sound, called Mach 1. The major development of the supersonic flights took place in the second half of the 20th century. The main applications of these supersonic planes were in the military and research departments. Moreover, there were many countries who were indulged in making supersonic aircraft planes of their own. Also, there are other kind of planes, called hypersonic planes, an advanced version of Supersonic planes which travels at five times the speed of sound. This is also referred to as Mach 5.
