This plane could cross the Atlantic in 3.5 hours. Why did it fail?
The Concorde gave us supersonic transport. But why did this supersonic plane fail?

The answer is complicated — Vox's Phil Edwards investigated.

The real is reason is simply the age of the aircraft. 30+ years old,with a huge fuel burn. Very,very delicate and fragile. Just not suitable for today air travel,when the plane is working really hard to bring money to the airline. I'm a huge Concorde fan,but,what happen in Paris was just waiting.

Sadly, I have to agree...

Ironically, I'm actually doing an around-the-world trip right now in the Concorde. Not sure how many legs this'll take or where it'll take Me, but we shall see :)

I'll submit My Flight Plans in a new thread once done :)
