Supersonic jet crashes in test

Supersonic jet crashes in test

The first test launch of what Japanese scientists hope will be the next generation of supersonic jet has failed in spectacular fashion in the Australian desert.

An 11.5-metre (38 feet) scale model of a plane intended to fly twice as fast as Concorde crashed into the ground shortly after taking off at a former rocket-testing range in South Australia.

It was launched on the back of a booster rocket, but as it climbed to around 100 m it began spiralling through the air before slamming into the ground and exploding.

Give it to a good marketing company. I'm sure they could put some spin on that!
