Missed Concorde? You May Be in Luck…
…as the question is asked: are there plans for Supersonic travel to return?
While Concorde is and will be permanently retired, the answer could be “Yes”, and supersonic travel could return to commercial air service by 2015 — or perhaps sooner.
This could mean that for those of you who were passengers on Concorde and miss the experience, or for those of you who missed flying as a passenger on Concorde altogether and never had a chance to do so, you may have an opportunity to fly as a passenger on a supersonic aircraft in several years.
I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to fly as a passenger on Concorde one week before it was retired, and it was an experience I will never forget.
