Looks as aerodynamic as a brick. Wonder how it would go on just one engine??......Straight down probably.

Fancy looking no doubt, but not fast enough. Since we're still a little far from harnessing/controlling the use of electromagnetic force, as a means of propulsion through air or space travel, I'll settle for the next best thing in way of flight "Hypersonics".

You're right about the speed factor Kon..I will always wonder how things would've progressed had Concorde not come to a tragic end Rolling Eyes

KLM are actually interested in this new design,so will be interesting to see if something develops,or just ends up in the bin under the drawing board T10

Concord was a bloody marvel and I was fortunate enough to get a look inside one.

Yes it had some probs but they were far from unsolvable.
