    I remember when the US SST program was sold to Japan for 10 cents on the dollar!

    Considering the condition of the airlines. The cost of certifying a supersonic aircraft is to high.

    I also do not believe the FAA has anyone left that has the ability to work with a manufacturer to certify one?!

    This early. Boeing design in the 70’s never made it to production.

    BTW Supersonic jets can only do supersonic speeds over the ocean because of shockwaves, which can break windows!!!

    Don't forget, the new SST development is backed by billions of private money ala Elon Musk types. The elites who want the SST will probably find the FAA someone who can. The only reason Boeing cancelled their SST was they only had enough money for the development of one new air frame at that time. They wisely chose the 747 instead.

    The new SST has improved low boom status, so that regulation is antiquated. Just think, Pelosi will only have a one martini flight! She might even order the pilot to fly around a bit so she can guzzle two more before she falls down the air stairs. :p

    That wasn't the building where the glass broke, it was the one at the left that had missing panes.
