What supersonic travel means for you - CNN

There was a time when the possibilities of air travel seemed limitless. Boeing's 747 "Jumbo Jet" supersized commerical aviation, then Concorde took it supersonic.

But these milestones were half a century ago, way back in 1969.

Concordes have since been confined to museums due to unsustainable operating costs and its rivals scrapped due to tech challenges and lack of demand.

Fast forward to today and supersonic travel could once again become a reality with a batch of new passenger-carrying aircraft currently in the later stages of development.
