Boom! Supersonic plane startup raises $33 million in funding

There was once a day when supersonic travel was one of the most romantic notions in aviation. The iconic Concorde was beautiful and entirely distinctive (and tickets were insanely expensive). Then, it was no more, and the concept vanished in thin air. But if you always wanted to fly faster than the speed of sound, Boom Supersonic, a startup based in Denver, is planning to make your wishes come true with 45-seat planes that can make the run from New York to London in three and a quarter hours (rather than today’s seven) for business class prices.
