How fast is mach nine?


3 Answers

Mach 9 would be about 5900 mph, at a reasonable altitude of 80000 feet. The Mach number is based on the speed of sound, which gets slower the higher your altitude. At sea level, Mach 9 would be closer to 6750 mph, but it would be very unusual for an aircraft to fly so fast that low.
