'Aurora' spy plane that travels SIX TIMES the speed of sound blamed for mysterious booms | Daily Mail Online

Quote:
Aurora is rumoured to be a top secret aircraft that has been in development since 1989. It could be a successor to the Mach 3.35 Lockheed Martin SR-71 Blackbird craft that was retired in 1998 (pictured). These claims originated in Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine in 1989

U.S. Firms Interested in Greek-Designed Experimental Aircraft
U.S. Firms Interested in Greek-Designed Experimental Aircraft | GreekReporter.com

Quote:
A single-seat and ultra-lightweight aluminium aircraft made entirely of low-cost and alternative materials by a Greek policeman in the northern city of Florina, Greece, has drawn the attention of several American companies that seek to exploit its commercial value.

“Archon” weighs approximately 200 kilos and has a 46 horsepower engine. It was developed by amateur flying enthusiast George Iliopoulos who has successfully built two fully functioning planes.

His first prototype, “Lygkistis,” was manufactured almost entirely of wood and other recycled materials, using old furniture, a wheelchair and a car engine.

After that, he came up with the idea of creating one more plane, made of used tin, at a scale of 1:6. A process of painstaking work and 3,000 edits of the original plan followed, making it possible for “Archon” to conquer the Greek skies. Iliopoulos has already received numerous emails from U.S. firms regarding “Archon,” which looks similar to a fighter aircraft.

Photo of the Day: Pininfarina H2 Speed in the Wind Tunnel
By Andrew Elliott -
12th May 2016
Photo of the Day: Pininfarina H2 Speed in the Wind Tunnel - GTspirit


Quote:
The H2 Speed was debuted at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and is the fastest hydrogen-powered car ever designed. According to Pininfarina, the car can reach a top speed of 186 mph.

The sprint from 0-60 mph takes just 3.4 seconds.

Powering the H2 are two electric motors along with a hydrogen fuel cell. It also has a regenerative braking system installed.

Pininfarina H2 Speed Is Part LMP Car, Part Eco Warrior - autoevolution

Quote:
Aerodynamics was also a key factor in the development of the H2 Speed, .............

It'll also sound special, Pininfarina says - at least for an electric vehicle, that is - and it's apparently down to the compressor technology it uses, which should achieve an almost silent drive. The hydrogen power unit was developed by Swiss specialist GreenGT.

Pininfarina intends to build the car in a limited run, and expects to have no trouble finding customers for the H2 Speed.
