After the engine is decided design & drawings of the aircraft are worked on. While Boom Supersonic officials are yet to decide which engine will-be used in their Overture aircraft.

Media reports suggest that Baum officials are in talks with Rolls Royce & several other auto companies instead of building their own engine.

Boom CEO Black School says that when his company plane takes off in 2029 it will be a different scene than it is today & the supersonic plane will cover the distance from New York to London in just three & a half hours. which nowadays takes 7 to eight hours. As if the journey will-be at twice the speed & the world will shrink further.
