Video shows Concorde achieving sonic boom and producing noise like no other plane

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Concorde made its last flight.

The epitome of high-end travel, the iconic jet flew at twice the speed of sound, five miles higher than a Boeing 747.

Supersonic flight more than halved travel times, with the sonic boom the passenger jet made as it broke the sound barrier hugely loud on the ground even from 60,000 feet.

Listen to Concorde’s ‘sonic boom’ as it breaks the sound barrier in the video below!
