On the 9th of February, the Boeing 747-436 reached speeds up to 825 mph during its flight from New York to London as it passed through storm Ciara.
The flight took four hours and 56 minutes to complete, beating the previous record held by Norwegian Airlines Boeing 747, which was five hours and 13 minutes.
The plane entered a jet stream created by the storm which allowed the plane to land at the airport 80 minutes earlier than expected, breaking the world record for the fastest Boeing transatlantic flight.
The Boeing 747-436 clearly went over the average speed of a Boeing aircraft, which is 595 mhp hour and landed safely.
