Japanese preparing a new supersonic aircraft will be 75% quieter than Concorde

For an invention of the 1970s, the supersonic Concorde had the futuristic design of all passenger aircraft in the world. But this is about to change.

 A new prototype of a supersonic aircraft (which can travel faster than the speed of sound) was presented to the press in Utsunomiya, Japan. The aircraft is being developed by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Inc. and Fuji Heavy Industries.

At the end of the prototype, which weighs a ton and measures 8 feet in length, will be subjected to a series of flight tests in Sweden.

A major disadvantage of Concorde was that it was incredibly noisy. Fortunately, if the new model will be created with the capacity to carry 50 passengers, it will be 75% quieter than its predecessor.
