Sydney to London in 49 minutes by plane

An experimental aircraft that could fly from Sydney to London in less than an hour at blistering speeds of 20,921km/h is due to be tested this week.

The unmanned, arrowhead-shaped aircraft, dubbed Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2, will test new technology that would provide the US Pentagon a lightning-fast vehicle capable of delivering a military strike anywhere in the world in under an hour.

At its top speed it could travel the 17,000 kilometres between London and Sydney in about 49 minutes. Learn more here.
