CONCORDE R.I.P (1977-2003)
Its unfortunate to see that British Airways and Air France have decided to ground the Concorde fleet not because of any technical reasons but because of the difficult "business conditions" both airlines are in.
Its really one of the marvelleous aircrats ever designed. It cruises at around 1350 mph at an altitude of up to 60,000ft (11 miles) meaning a crossing from Europe to New York takes less than three and a half hours.
