Imagine this: In the time it takes to receive your Seamless order, you could be flying from JFK to Heathrow. We swear this is no Back to the Future parody, it’s Skreemr — a scram jet that travels at 10 times the speed of sound (more than 7,600 mph, to be precise).

The supersonic aircraft is currently being developed for military use only, but the aerospace brains behind the operation, Charles Bombardier and Ray Mattison, say that in the future the rocket could carry up to 75 passengers.

So, put away your passports… for now.
