4 thoughts on “Good bye, Concorde”

  1. Actually, I thought the Lockheed Constellation
    was a prettier plane than the Concorde — it had
    the same voluptuous 1950 look as my old XK120.

    The Concorde was impressive, but wrong. Practical
    airliners have gotten no faster since the 707,
    and won’t until they change the laws of physics.
    Boeing even dropped their plan to eke out an extra
    tenth of a Mach and continue to build 450-knot

    And world hunger is a most soluble problem; it’s
    just less fashionable than blowing up Arabs.
