Return Of The Sonic Cruiser?

I was browsing the website of BCA and interestingly, a section on the Sonic Cruiser came up:

This doesn't make much sense as I thought the concept was dropped almost 3 years ago.


would have been a beautiful plane...

Needs a couple more generations of engines and perhaps even composites.

Maybe 20-30 years?
