I've just read an article (clari.world.europe.russia) on
Tupolev's supersonic passenger jet Tu-144LL. It looks
that the design produced very good preliminary results.
Tupolev  claims the jet will be twice faster than today's
passenger jets and the cost of flying will be just about
20% higher. Anybody knows more about this aircraft?
It seems to me the two major problems with the passenger jets
are speed and cabin noise.
