What is with the news media reporting all of this "hypersonic" crap. "Hypersonic missiles. Hypersonic glide vehicles", etc. This thing was moving at Mach 10. A plain-jane, run-of-the-mill ICBM speed is Mach 15 to Mach 20. Apparently somebody learned a new word recently! lol
like "systemic" :D
Or "racist" or "domestic terrorist" just because you don't agree with them politically.
That’s what I was thinking when I first saw hypersonic. The deadly part of hypersonic missiles is their maneuverability
Be afraid, Very afraid of anything the FAA does. They need to hire better personnel: like people who know about aviation.
