I think the name is an unfortunate choice. The first time one of them goes boom!— into a mountainside or whatever, they'll never hear the end of it. The press and social media will have a field day with the name and it'll be so tainted they'll have to change it after the fact. Just because supersonic means sonic 'boom' was a silly reason to name the company that. I pray my words don't echo into the future, and I jinx this outcome.

this "vision supersonic airliner" cannot be acceptable if any consideration to the atmospheric destruction it must cause is acknowledged. Simply to indulge self important vip travelers who sense of the worth or their time is far, far more inportant than preserving the sancity of our upper atmosphere and its polution, and the effects on the weather upon planet earth. Which we all have to share and experience.

Yes, their website says “Overture’s fleet will be able to run on 100% sustainable aviation fuels.” That said, talk is cheap, we’ll see what actually happens. 2029 target for starting commercial passenger service seems aggressive, a lot can go wrong, both technically and financially, that would keep this thing from ever being more than a pipe dream.

T Patrick Baker. Lets get some perspective on your comments re pollution.If a 777 from LAX to HKG takes 12 hrs and a Boom aircraft flying the identical route takes 6 hours( with more modern, advanced and less polluting engines ) would the pollution footprint not be less? Many business folks just want to make their time away from wife and kids minimalized and if Boom can get them reunited 1 day earlier I am fine with that picture. Progress Mr. Baker
