Boeing Sonic Cruiser is a new aircraft that is being built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Boeing is aiming to develop a design that will allow commercial passenger and cargo aircraft to fly faster, higher and farther travel. The airplane will travel at Mach 0.95 or faster. It is estimated that it will save about one hour for every 3,000 miles flown. The only commercial aircraft to travel faster is the Concorde.
