Lunch in London, Dinner In Sydney

Posted By HappyHomemakerUK

One day it could come true

Four hours from London to Sydney
in the newest Concorde-inspired jet

Pendant available via Etsy

Boeing, Gulfstream and NASA have teamed together
to reduce the sonic boom
and to make a lighter aircraft

I can't imagine life in 2020,
but I love seeing glimpses of the possibilities
Don't you?

That sounds like a great thing to me! One of the reasons I have never been to Australia is I cannot stand being on a plane more than 10 hours.

Have a fabulous weekend, Elizabeth

Oh if only if would happen sooner than 2020. My family live in Australia, and one sister just outside Sydney. Imagine.......

paisleysummer said...

Wow that would make travel from Australia absolutely bearable!

Sarah Jane said...

My goodness...maybe I would travel overseas to visit England and France if it were that quick. A 4 hour flight I could bear, but no longer than that.
Enjoy the weekend!

Interesting. I might go then, I'm such a wimp when it comes to long flights. BTW-love that pendant.

That sounds wonderful..after being in a plane for eight hours to get from Brisbane to Taipei, I found my limit. I think at the moment I would have to hop from stop to stop to get to London with some sanity!

Wow - I can't wait - does that mean it's only 2 hours from New York to London?? yipphee!!

I've never been to that part of the world either, and right now it is about 24 hours away for me. I'd love to make the trip one day :)

It's a date! ;)

It would be lovely to get home to Australia that quickly.

That would be amazing! A quick flight to Australia from NZ for me then onto London to see much missed friends and family............ Wonderful!

I am old enough to remember the mysterious sonic booms from Concorde when it was being tested during development (we lived near to Bristol where the first Concorde test flights took place). As a small child I was actually rather scared of the bangs!

Annie @ knitsofacto said...

Oops, lost part of my comment. I was thinking how quickly an idea becomes a reality, as with Concorde.

It's a wonderful thought, that I could visit my Aussie chums for a day!

I'd be on that airplane: Denver to London in 3 hours. I think direct it is 8 hours. A very long fight. 23 to Sydney from here too. Can you imagine going that fast?

Robynne's Nest said...

Oh God, bring it on...then only another hour to Melbourne...beats 24 hours London-Melb! Robx

Heather Woods said...

Wouldn't that be awsome! then us Aussies wouldn't feel so far "down under!" Regards Heather

I miss my New Zealand
bestie and have only
visited her there once,
due to the long travel
time from here.

Think how much more
the world could be
connected with this type
of air travel : )
