Supersonic Jet Goes For A Cool $80,000,000

The first Aerion Supersonic Business Jet was recently sold to Sheikh Rashid, the ruler of Dubai. It set him back a paltry $80,000,000. The thing can reach Mach 1.6 and fly from New York to Tokyo in 9.5 hours. Or from New York to Paris in 4.2 hours. It's powered by two Pratt & Whitney JT8D-219 engines, which make it go really fast. Almost as fast as me. I just flew home from California and boy are my arms tired. Get it? Because I was flying like a bird. Not in a plane. I was flapping my arms, that's why they're tired. Wow that one gets me every time. I am LOL and ROFL. Oh god, I just SMP. If you'll excuse me I need to do a load of laundry.

Video after the cut, but there's no real life footage of the plane.
