Alden Overture Retrojet

The Boom Overture promises to revive supersonic travel with a new, efficient, and relatively quiet SST by taking advantage of recent developments in aerospace technology such composite construction and powerful non-afterburning turbofan engines.

On April 1st 2020, Alden re-introduced its Supersonic subsidiary by placing 10 orders and 10 options for Boom's 65-88-seat SST, the Overture. Expected to fly in 2026 and enter service in 2029, the Overture promises economical Mach 2 travel, with tickets being similar in price to business class seats on current subsonic airliners.

On June 4th, 2021, this order was increased to 20 firm orders with a further 30 options. Alden plans to use the overture to re-vitalize its South American and Pacific networks, as well as to supplement its Atlantic network, and potentially charter routes. Rollout is planned for 2024, with a first flight in 2025, and first delivery in 2029.

Here is what the Overture would look like in Alden's retrojet paint scheme, inspired by the Concorde.

Feedback is appreciated, as always.


    This is excellent.
