And still no successor ?...

For many, many years we have been promised that the successor to Concorde will make its first tests in a few months. It has been going on for so long that we have grown tired of seeing projects appear, be presented in a more or less coherent way, disappear and then fall into collective oblivion ...

In fact, all Concorde and supersonic enthusiasts dream of seeing a successor to the Bel Oiseau Blanc, but, despite technological advances but also environmental restrictions, the development of the future supersonic is not so easy to master ...

Currently, the most successful project seems to be that of the American Boom and its XB-1 prototype. Equipped with three J-85-15 turbojets designed by General Electric, the 21 meters long demonstrator (left) should fly, according to its manufacturer, in the third quarter of 2021, tomorrow...

This version will prefigure an aircraft three times the size, the Overture (right), capable of carrying 55 passengers at Mach 2.2 over 8,300 km, from 2030...

So let's already dare to dream of the prototype tests which should start in just a few weeks... and, as our British friends say : wait and see !


The "Club Concorde" recalls to its impassioned philately that, from now on, the innovations are announced and illustrated progressively with their emission, in the page ' the philatelic products'. It is thus in real time that the Club informs you of the philatelic items
