An engineering development to cut flying time way, way down

From Oxford Mail. A really interesting news flash that engineers have figured out how to improve jet engine performance so a passenger plane can fly anywhere in four hours or less!

I can only hope this becomes viable in my traveling lifetime. Seven hours from NYC to London has been old-old-old for a long time and the 14 hour flight from the US West Coast to Australia is so butt-numbing that a return trip Down Under seems almost impossible.
