Airplane/Fastest
The Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird is the fastest jet aircraft in the world, reaching speeds of Mach 3.3–that’s more than 3,500 kph (2,100 mph) and almost four times as fast as the average cruising speed of a commercial airliner.

How long does it take to fly around the Earth without refueling?

The average commercial jet liner travels about 550 mph, and the Earth is around 26,000 miles in circumference. If a commercial plane could make the trip without refueling, it would take over 47 hours. A large commercial jetliner has a range of about 5,000 miles, so it would need to land and refuel several times.

Why is a plane flying at 500 mph?

If you fly in the opposite direction that earth is spinning, basically flying against the spin, the earth is moving toward you with the spin at the speed of 1000 miles per hour. Assuming the plane is flying at 500 mph on its own, why are you not flying toward your destination at the speed of 1500mph?

How many times can light travel around the Earth in 1 second?

If you were traveling at the speed of light you could fly around the world 7 and a half times in one second. Superman eat your heart out.
