  • The Concorde led the way in aviation technology but its program lasted less than 30 years. Supersonic transport hasn’t been seen since in commercial aviation, but it may be about to make a comeback.

    I'm not sure if an airplane company wanna name themself "BOOM". You know, not only is it the sound of breaking the sound barrier, it's also the sound of an explosion......

    Michael Talbot The Concorde was prevented from flying supersonic in most countries. The rules haven’t changed in America. Try and contain your childish and ignorant anti-Americanism.

    It's perhaps a kind of intended bittersweet irony.

    Only 30% more efficient? The GE Affinity on its own is 58% more efficient than the Olympus engines, and you'd only need 2 of them since you're carrying half the passengers. And with modern composites there should be way more improvement than just 30%.

    @DS Analysis not sure if carbon fiber body is viable due to high temperatures of body cause by friction... if anything such new aircraft would need much greater range than concorde besides efficiency

    We moved towards affordability. Now anyone can afford to fly. That wasn't a thing in the 70s.
