    The reason why concord is not longer flying, because is just too noisy and
    too expensive to maintain. The next generation of super-sonic passenger will
    solve that problem my using a scram-jet, instead of using a turbine with an

    It uses steam from his bike's engine.

  4. The generation of supersonic passenger won't need a scram jet. They'll
    have their own nuclear fuel cell and will be able to beam into places by
    just thinking about it.

    I think it could be quite dangerous if it beamed into wherever the pilot was
    thinking about.

  6. True. The ability to turn into a tampon would be useful.

  9. It was somewhere around Barstow, on the edge of the desert, when the
    drugs began to take hold. I remember "Slider"
    No doubt involving two-stroke engines and steam heating for the cabin.

    I see that you're unfamiliar with how a scram-jet works as they would not
    reduce noise at take-off or landing - where it is a problem - in the
    slightest: scram-jets don't work until the vehicle is moving at very high
    speed, so another source of thrust is needed for take-off and landing[1].

    [1] I assume an unpowered landing will not be acceptable in a commercial
    passenger aircraft.

    The chances are there will never be another super-sonic passenger plane,
    I blame the fucking septics.

    As others have mentioned scram jets only *start* working at (from
    memory) around 500 Mph so you still need **** off jets to get you off
    the ground and up to speed.

    I don't know [1] which sir.tony you are so just to be on the safe side

    railgun for take off. Nice and quiet. Well, apart from the screaming
