They travel at 1.7 times the speed of sound.

Wanna go to London? You could hop on a jet from Miami today and arrive there about 9 1/2 hours from takeoff. It’s a formidable flight for sure. If American Airlines gets its way, you’ll soon have an option that’s much faster. How would you like to traverse 4,426 miles in 5 hours?

Looking eerily like an updated version of the ill-fated Concorde, the brand new Boom supersonic jets have been ordered and are on their way to American Airlines. One of the new jets will be used to fly passengers from Miami to London at a previously unheard of rate of speed. Supersonic aircraft have been around for years, making shuttle flights between London and Miami for years, but they were cancelled due to high costs and a terrible crash just after takeoff.

Blake Scholl, CEO of Boom, says the jets will debut in 2029 and will charge approximately $4,000 to $5,000 for a flight. He also says a flight from new York to London will take only 3 1/2 hours. Other flights will be much faster, too. Los Angeles to Honolulu flights will take only 3 hours. The new jets will travel at 1,300 mph, compared to the typical 500 mph speed of today’s passenger jets. Each flight will carry 65 to 80 passengers. The jets were designed and will be built in America, the first of which will be manufactured in North Carolina. The jets will sell for about $200,000,000 each. Source:

The Blue Angels Visit Miami

Blue Angels Fly Over Miami and Jacksonville

Sean Roberts was conceived in the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky by two passionate, panel aligning, third shifters who had grown bored with the same ole same ole. Upon birth, he was placed in the trunk of a new Stingray and sent off to find his destiny. That destiny included several stints on radio stations across the United States. Some played punk country gospel, while others focused on Croatian death metal played backwards. After many years and many adventures, Sean wound up on The Shark, where he does shots of tequila while playing the most badass tunes ever created by humankind. He remains humble, however, never forgetting about the lean years...the street corners and dark alleys where he played songs on his car stereo for food and sex. He's on top and he's never gonna stop LIVING THE DREAM!
