Supersonic passenger flights to return almost 20 years after Concorde retired

United Airlines has conditionally agreed to buy jets capable of flying at speeds of Mach 1.7 – twice as fast as modern airliners.

It could see flight times slashed in half – with a journey from London to Newark in New Jersey taking three and a half hours.
