The thing looks like a "B-1ski."

Dang, you beat me to it...

How about the B-Own?
malki2601
It may not be quite as big as the Russian aircraft but would be much more reliable...
A6SEA
Yep. Don't know if the Russians ever had an original idea.
dabeed
well, considering it took German know-how to bring the US into the jet age, people in glass houses...
joelwiley
Not to mention all that Yankee ingenuity of Dr. Werner von Braun in the space race.
A6SEA
OK, OK! I'm going to my room now...

NASA is also working on the SonicBAT program to develop a softer sonic boom for a possible SST.

But who is going to re-pack the drag chutes?
joelwiley
Leona Helmsly's 'little people'

I'll wait for the hypersonic cruise missile transport.

Really poorly written article about nothing. It will never happen.

How pissed would the pilot be when I slow him to mach .83 for sequence behind a B767.

Not nearly as much as the A/C owner in the back.

"Super rich want supersonic bomber as business jet".
Ummm, people, this is an example of what a certain guy calls FAKENEWS. Thanks for making it real Airlinerwatch you dumbasses.

Fake news? The article gave a couple of possible buyers but weren't specific and Antonov said why they couldn't do it. Nothing fake there.
malki2601
Antonov isn't Russian anyway. They're Ukrainian...

Wow that plane could cross the US in 2 hours. You could actually have breakfast in LA and lunch in New York. The rich are becoming richer so I’m sure they are bored with airline conversions to corporate. Now it’s military conversions.

It would never be allowed to fly across the US or Europe for that matter. It doesn't have the certification for carrying passengers, and the sonic boom it leaves in its wake is the reason that the Concorde only reached its top speed over oceans.
djjamar
True however I’m sure some team is working on a sonic boom solution now. Only a matter of time before a supersonic biz jet with no boom is marketed and sold
TorstenHoff
Oh, they are -- look at Boom Technology. I'm just saying that converting the Tu-160 into a business jet will never go anywhere.

Yes company will start test flights next years. Let's wait and see.
malki2601
It would take a very costly conversion to "rebuild" such an aircraft for passenger transport from a military bomber aircraft. They would also need several orders to make it worth the expense to eventually make a profit... Makes you wonder if it would ever "take off" so to speak...???

Or breakfast in NY and then again in LA.

Anyway, I think odds are better of BFR suborbital pax service happening.

I'll be darned it the TU-160 doesn't bear a striking resemblance to the B-1.

It was a clean sheet design, like the Tu-144 and the Tu-2.

Sarcasm mode off.
