Speed Comparison of All the Fastest Aircraft Ever Existed in the world

Speed and agility are decisive advantages in any form of aerial dominance. An airspeed record is the highest airspeed attained by an aircraft of a particular class. Modern Fighter jets operate at supersonic speed

Supersonic travel is a rate of travel of an object that exceeds the speed of sound. Speeds greater than five times the speed of sound (Mach 5) are often referred to as hypersonic.

Here is the Fastest Aircraft Ever Exist Maximum Speed Comparison 3D Video. which one is your favourite?

North American X-15 This aircraft has the current world record for the fastest manned aircraft. Its maximum speed was Mach 6.70 (about 7,200 km/h) which it attained on the 3rd of October 1967 thanks to its pilot William J. “Pete” Knight.

There are very many aircraft that has exceeded the speed of Mach 2.0. Some of them are research aircraft, some are military and some are simply flying for reconnaissance purposes.

But there is always something special with supersonic aircraft. Just imagine flying at an altitude of 5 kilometres, hearing a “go” from the radio and pushing that throttle backwards while feeling the 100+kN engine accelerating you to speeds higher than any other life form has ever been seen doing. But you are not the fast one, you are just a passenger.

The aircraft that you are flying in, the machine that gives you powers to rise above the clouds in mere minutes is the true masterpiece. The masterpiece of military engineering.
