I must have missed something Levent.

I remember the event profiled in the next video after your's. The Smithsonian channel told the whole story of the Concorde's demise in their "Air Disasters" series. Tire picked up a piece of FOD that dropped off a DC-10 that used that runway just prior to the Concordes departure. Flipped it into the Concorde's fuselage rupturing it's fuel tank.

Too bad, a beautiful airplane gone to soon.

I watched that documentary myself. Firetrucks lined up symmetrically on both sides of the runway spouting water high in the air crisscrossing each other as Concorde passed under. The captain removed his flight jacked and placed it into the space where the nose drops. The nose was then raised back into position and his jacket was sealed within. The documentary was also followed with another which was about the jet set era where beautiful stewardess's were the staple of the times. They had to meet certain criteria to be able to work for the airlines. Some of them were gifted houses, cars, money. It was quite a lifestyle. This is what sold the seats on the airways. If you want to sell wheelbarrows, put a pretty picture of a woman on the side.

The costs to fly supersonic was astronomical even in it's early years, as oil embargo of the 70's arrived, it was quite amazing that the Concorde project still moved forward. I recall sitting in the fuel lines with my dad. It was July I believe and it was hot as could be. We had the 270 air conditioner, 2 windows down 70 miles an hour but without gas the car was a oven. I'm talking with the old man and were sitting in the car and I said dad, smoke is coming out of the fender. He gets out, pops the hood and the fire raced out and up onto the windshield. The entire firewall engulfed in flames. The firehouse was directly across the street from the gas station and the fireman raced over and put it out with extinguishers. I remember dad spending about 2 weeks to replace the wiring harness in the car.

Don Dewey apparently followed that strategy when he was publishing RCM Magazine. Surprised

The late Ken Willard had this to say in one of his half-A RC construction articles, "RCM is a family magazine, in spite of some of the cover photos we've been seeing lately." Laughing
