Canadian engineer Charles Bombardier has designed an aircraft capable of reaching Mach 24 at 40,000 feet, which would allow flight from New York to London in 11 minutes. The Antipod can carry 10 people up to 12,430 miles in under an hour. Using a supersonic combustion ramjet engine, it is able to take off directly from any airfield by using reusable rocket boosters.
