Storm Ciara helps break NYC to London speed record

As hurricane force winds of 90mph batter the UK, bringing travel misery and power cuts for millions, the weather has helped one plane set a new record.

While many faced flight cancellations because of Storm Ciara, BA flight 112 too just four hours and 56 minutes to complete a flight from New York to London late on Saturday evening, reaching speeds of up to 800mph…

It means the flight is likely to have broken the fastest-ever subsonic New York to London crossing time, smashing the previous record set by Norwegian Airways which took five hours and 13 minutes in January 2018…

Woo-Hoo!
