China’s T-Flight maglev hyperloop train breaks the world speed record at 387 mph, promising a future where high-speed rail could outpace airplanes, transforming global travel and connectivity.

The T-Flight, engineered by the state-owned CASIC, represents a significant leap forward in maglev (magnetic levitation) technology. Unlike conventional trains, the maglev system operates by levitating pods through tunnels with minimal air resistance, thereby enabling the train to achieve previously unimaginable speeds.

The recent test in China eclipsed the former record held by Japan’s L0 Series SCMaglev, which peaked at 375 mph (603 km/h).
