3. The revolutionary bit? Its passenger cabin will contain no windows, but rather thin display screens.

Cameras on the exterior of the jet will allow outside views to be beamed into the cabin, but passengers also have the option to select one of a number of panoramic scenes - or simply dim the screens if they want to catch some sleep.

4. The absence of windows will make the aircraft more streamlined, and therefore faster.

The S-512 will take between three and four hours to fly from New York to London - around the same travel time as Concorde.
