New York to London in Under 5-Hours

CNN reports that a British AIrways Boeing 747 aircraft flew overnight from New York to London in four hours and 56 minutes, as Storm Ciara sped towards the United Kingdom.

This was the fastest-ever subsonic flight between New York and London, reaching a top speed of more than 800mph (1,287km/h), and arriving at Heathrow almost two hours ahead of schedule.

This reminds me of the days of the Concorde, which took about 3.5 hours.
