You Won’t Believe How Fast These 12 Aircraft Can Fly

featured-imageOf all the technological advances mankind has made through the years, manned flight is probably the most impressive. Since the first powered flight in 1903, we’ve come a long way with commercial airliners that can travel hundreds of miles in just a few hours to military aircraft that can move fast enough to break the sound barrier.

Most airplanes are fast, there’s no denying that. But these 12 take speed to a different level. We also included a few planes that are still at the prototype stage just to show you what the near future may hold for manned flight.
