+ - Supersonic dream: Remembering the Concorde->

Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie (973519) writes "It's hard to believe it has been 10 years since the last supersonic Concorde jet flew its final flight. Beginning in 1976, the metal dart-like aircraft flew regular transatlantic flights between London and Paris to New York and Washington Dulles airports for 27 years. Only 20 of them were built and in the end, only one of them ever crashed, but it was that crash and other ongoing issues that ultimately doomed the airplane. British Airways retired its Concorde fleet on October 24, 2003 and the last flight of a Concorde in the U.S. was a November 2003 run between New York and Seattle to deliver the aircraft to a museum there"
