It was a sad day for aviation technology. The final three flights of the Concorde supersonic jets were flown today. These planes epitomized a future of supersonic air travel, sadly only the richest of the rich could afford flights aboard these unsurpassably quick planes.
Ticket sales post September 11th slumped, creating the lowest ticket sales in recent history, this along with the crash of a Concorde owned by AirFrance in 2000, which grounded all Concordes for over a year, doomed the line of jets.
But, with the demise of the Concorde, there is hope. It won’t be long before another line of supersonic jets are built, that are hopefully more energy efficient and affordable for the average air traveler.
