"it soared so high you could see the Earth's curve" petition to put a bunch of flat earthers on this flight then crash those who still remain flat earthers

“The then Seattle based Boeing...” Who the hell writes these scripts?? It’s full of lazy and easily correctable errors. There are so many, but I zeroed in on the one I quoted. Boeing is still Seattle based. Do better.

Watch the CBC documentary/movie The Arrow, it's on YouTube, l guarantee you'll like it if you like the Concorde. You forgot to mention a really important country in developing supersonic flight.

4:30 I see alot of people not getting what it means. Well, the biggest thing that stops normal passenger aircrafts from going Mach 9000 is Air Resistance, which is where air (oxygen, nitrogen ect) collide with the plane (the nose or the ends of the wings) and therefore the points creates drag. There is little to no air at 60,000 feet, so, there is nothing to resist the plane from going as fast as it can.

It was too loud. Humans who lived in the area where the planes took off couldn’t stand all the sonic booms.

the only reason it ‘’failed’’ was because the USA was jealous of France’s advances & put everything into their power to trash it & eventually it worked...

Just give the passangers hearing protection, and reduce price! I mean, it flies sooo high anyways!!!! BRING THE DAMN CONCORDE BACK!!!!!!!!!!!
leander93 (8 days ago)
The rise of business and first class with flat seats for sleeping for a fraction of the price, also contributed to the fall of concorde. Even though the flight would be longer, you could leave London in the evening and arrive we'll rested in the morning without really losing time to travel.

It wasn't do to failed tires. There was a piece a metal on the run way and that got thrown into the fuel tank during take off.

Another reason Concord failed is because it did not have TVs
Rich Marceau (22 days ago)
You failed to note that the debris left on the runway by a Continental Airways DC-10 that had an inappropriate repair done was the immediate cause of the accident. It was not exclusively a tire design fault on the Concorde. I also doubt that the presence of a Flight Engineer was much of a factor in the retirement; given the fares charged their salary would be trivial.

4:47 He dreams of rain He dreams of gardens in the desert sand He wakes in vain ; He dreams of love as time runs through my hand He dreams of fire those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire; and in the flames her shadows play in the shape of a man’s desire His desert rose each of her veils, a secret promise; This desert flower no sweet perfume ever tortured him more than this And as she turns ; this way she moves in the logic of all his dreams this fire burns he realize that nothing’s as it seems

1:45. That’s why it didn’t work! The government was the one funding it, not private industries and inventors. The reason why I am saying this is because the government does not know how to invest, and neither does any government on this earth. They have virtually unlimited amounts of cash at their disposal while private businesses and inventors don’t. An example would be the plane. The governments of the world have all embarked of projects to build a flying machine, but all of them failed. However the Wright brothers did succeed without government funding.
