Fort Worth-Based American Airlines Orders Up to 20 Boom Supersonic Aircraft

Nearly 30 years after the last Concorde flight, American Airlines is betting on a supersonic future. The Fort Worth-based airline has ordered up to 20 Boom Supersonic Overture aircraft, with an option to order up to 40 more. But don't book your flight yet: Denver-based Boom doesn't expect to roll its first Overture off the production line until 2025, and the first passenger flights are slated for 2029.

When they do take flight, the Overtures are expected to fly up to 80 passengers at Mach 1.7 over water, reaching destinations in as little as half the time of subsonic airliners.
