Richard Branson’s new supersonic jet aircraft that promises to halve air travel times will see its first test flight take place later this year.

The XB-1, nicknamed “Baby Boom”, claimed to be the world’s fastest civil aircraft ever made and promises to send passengers between London and New York in three hours and 15 minutes.

The new aircraft has a cruising speed of  1,451mph, which is 10 per cent faster than Concorde’s speed of Mach 2 and 2.6 times faster than other airliners. This is 10 per cent faster than Concorde, which flew at speeds of up to 1,350mph.
