A model of the patented jet.
This final note on the way out today comes to us courtesy of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
It’s approved a patent filed by the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company, the company that makes Airbus, for an “ultra-rapid air vehicle.”
It’s a hyperspeed plane, basically, that will take you from London to New York in an hour at Mach 4.5, or more than 3,000 miles per hour.
Checked bag fees are probably really high, though.
