PHOTOS: Richard Branson unveils supersonic ‘Baby Boom’ passenger jet that can fly from NY to London in three-and-a-half hours

heroBoom Technology has unveiled a prototype of a jet it says will be the world’s fastest passenger aircraft.

The ‘Baby Boom’ picks up from where the Concorde left off about 13 years ago. This Concorde-style jet will offer passengers to travel from New York to London in about three-and-a-half hours.

The jet has a cruising speed of Mach 2.2 (approximately 1,451 miles per hour), which is 10 percent faster than the Concorde’s speed of Mach 2.

The price from New York to London? About $5,000 per ticket.
