The XB-70, one of the world's most exotic airplanes, was conceived for the Strategic Air Command in the 1950s as a high-altitude bomber that could fly three times the speed of sound (Mach 3). Because of fund limitations, only two were built, not as bombers, but as research aircraft for the advanced study of aerodynamics, propulsion and other subjects related to large supersonic aircraft.

Handley Page HP.115 was a British delta wing research aircraft built by Handley Page to test the low-speed handling characteristics to be expected from a supersonic airliner of slender delta configuration. It formed part of the British supersonic aircraft research programme, carried out in the 1960s and sponsored by the Ministry of Supply, that eventually produced the Concorde.

Blackburn Buccaneer S2. Using the more powerful Spey engines. The aircraft was designed to run at high subsonic speed at low level, but the lack of supersonic performance meant it was reluctantly accepted by the RAF after the cancellation of the TSR2. Always seen as a stopgap, the aircraft suffered from a lack of development of its radar and electronics.

Tu-144 USSR-77110 you see on the image above landed thirty years ago at an airfield of Ulyanovsk-Barataevka. It was the final, 140th flight for the supersonic plane, its destination was the museum in Ulyanovsk. The flight lasted 1 hour 30 minutes, since the beginning of its service it had logged 247 hours 1 minute (including 116 hours 27 minutes in a supersonic mode).

The Hawker Siddeley P.1154 was a planned supersonic vertical/short take-off and landing (V/STOL) fighter aircraft designed by Hawker Siddeley Aviation (HSA). Developed alongside the subsonic and smaller Hawker Siddeley P.1127/Kestrel, the P.1154 was derived from the P.1150. The P.1150 proposal did not meet NATO Basic Military Requirement 3 and, consequently, the P.1154 was born.
