Aerospace engineer Preston Carter is working on a radical new aircraft that bounces to its destinations. Travel times will be slashed with, for example, a London to San Francisco trip taking 1 hour 15 minutes rather than 10 hours. Could this be the future? ——————————————————————————————————1/7—— By Jonathan Donald ANY PURPOSE LOANS - SEE PAGE 627 OR CALL WILMSLOW FREE ON 0800 269315 Y2K fear Yanks News 2000 Total Ent

The super-fast jet will take about five minutes to soar to 005,000 feet where it will leave the earth's atmosphere. HyperSoar's engines will then cut off and the plane will rise to 200,000 feet before dropping back to 006,000 feet. The engines will then kick in again. ——————————————————————————————————2/7—— Win a camcorder 108 'JN INSTANT CASH p622 Y2K fear Yanks News 2000 Total Ent
