In a game I am running, the characters will need to make the above trip, and they will need to do it quickly. How? While I should leave it up to them, they might not come up with it, so that means I will have to drop a hint.

Setting: modern day. The players are part of a sort-of government crimefighting team, and they have tracked an enemy to that island in the Caribbean and need to get there before he unveils the rest of his nefarious plot. Saying "the government gets you there" is not acceptable, I need an actual conveyance.

My first thought was to hop a jet fighter, and just have it in-flight refuel a couple times, but there's going to be like 6 of them, and cruising at mach2 on afterburner for a half-hour at a time just doesn't fit my sense of realism. Flying them to New York to commandeer a Concorde (this is y2k, so they still fly) also sounds wrong. I suspect Martinique doesn't have an airfield to support it anyway. Having a secret XR-71 for such a purpose WOULD be somewhat in the spirit, but I don't think they would buy that.

So, any ideas? IS there a high speed aircraft capable of moving 6 people at near or above the speed of sound that I'm forgetting about?

Oh, and - Yay Traveller! (just so the post goes here in this forum)
