据英国《每日邮报》6月19日消息,近日,波音公司宣布超音速客机即将成为现实,并有望在未来10年内投入使用。超音速客机将大大缩短航程。比如一架商用客机从纽约飞到上海需要15小时,但超音速飞机只需2小时。(软慧小编温馨提示:这是概念性的飞机,大家看看就好)。
近来,波音公司成功签署了一项军事协议,将制造一艘大型飞船,取名“幻影飞梭”(Phantom Express)。“幻影飞梭”飞船的机型尺寸和商业飞机相当,起飞时将如同火箭,能够将自身送入大气层之外的太空,在转身和着陆之前能够释放出可张开的第二级火箭和卫星。该飞船在着陆时也如同飞机一样。飞船制造项目名为XS-1,预计将于2020年首次亮相。
'I think in the next decade or two you're going to see them become a reality,' Boeing Chairman and CEO Dennis Muilenburg told CNBC at the Paris Air Show.  He believes the firm's work on experimental craft such as the firm's work on the X-51 Waverider (pictured) would also prove invaluable.

  最近,波音公司还透露将开发一款自动驾驶飞机,并于明年进行一些技术测试。这个想法看起来似乎不可能实现,但是目前自动飞行技术成本已经很低。不过,波音公司仍需要说服相关监管机构来为自动驾驶飞机进行认证。

The inability to turn a profit on supersonic flights between the U.S. and Europe is what ultimately killed the Concorde.It was first flown in 1969, but needed further tests to establish it as viable as a commercial aircraft.

Boeing is looking to test the technology in a simulator this summer and use it in real aircraft from next year, Mike Sinnett, vice president of product development said (stock image)
