Traveling from Mumbai to London in just 1 hour might now be a possibility – here’s how
If you are a globetrotter who loves to travel around the world but hates to sit in the flight for long hours then there is good news for you. Also, if you love the beautiful and lovely city of London but hate the time that it takes to travel from India to London then, again, this is great news for you too.
So, a company based out of Oxfordshire, England is planning a hypersonic flight that would be able to zip from Mumbai to London and vice-versa in an hour. In a report by Times Travel, this dream might soon turn to reality if the plan is executed well.
We often get bored on long flights and since the travel time in flight between Mumbai and London is over 9 hours, this sounds so much like a relief. It will be a direct flight too, which is again a relief that will save you from waiting at the airport for hours during a halt.
Times Travel also reported that the hypersonic flight will have the capacity to travel 38800 miles per hour which is really, really fast. The organisation in question has revealed that the engine cooling system test was successful which is crucial as the extreme heat build-up inside the engines is one of the reasons why hypersonic airplanes are still a dream.
If the latest reports are anything to go by then it suggests that this new technology would help an airplane in flying at Mach 5 or even higher. While all this sounds really exciting, there is a catch and it is that this flight is not going to be cheap at all.
This means that only the super riches and celebrities would be able to fly it. but gradually, it might become affordable for common people as well. It will take a few years for the plane to be designed and get operational.
