Around the world in Eight Hours? On a silent Sonic Star!

Richard Lugg of Hypermach is out to design the Sonic Star the fastest yet greenest plane that can travel from New York to Sydney in four hours.
There is more to come. It will also fly without creating the sonic boom that always accompanies supersonic flight.

This is not a pipe dream as Lugg has impeccable track record and credentials in the field.

Bharat that is India will bring him down to earth with a thud. I take two hours to reach the air port and another hour to check in at Bangalore for a 40 minute flight to Madras.
