    Heritage Concorde Tech “Project Flagship

    For almost 8 years, the world has perceived that Concorde has been nothing more than a museum relic since her premature retirement. For years since,critics have claimed that any kind of restoration work keeing it beyond a museum piece was not feasible and impossible to carry out, especially on a British Concorde. However, it would appear that all of this has been overturned and proven wrong – thanks to the efforts of Heritage Concorde Tech.

    For those of you who still dream of supersonic flight, today’s story may provide a glimmer of hope.
    Last weekend a former Concorde engineer performed a preliminary engine inspection on one of the Mach 2 airliners in hopes of green-lighting the resurrection of the Concorde as a flying piece of aviation history instead of a mothballed museum display.
    The supersonic Concorde last flew in 2003 and several of them have been sitting as museum pieces ever since. But almost as soon as the engines were shut down for the last time, there has been a small group of people who have been trying to get at least one of them flying again. Until recently, much of the effort has been seen as mostly a long shot. But now there has been a positive step taken towards getting the massively powerful jet engines up and running again.

    Concorde future at Filton could be agreed

    British Airways (BA) and Airbus say they hope a way forward regarding the future of the last Concorde to fly will be secured by September.

    The jet was on display in Filton until late 2010 but was closed by Airbus, which was loaned the plane by BA so the firm could carry out maintenance.

    Concorde replacement might be here in 15 years, if this built this will be more than WOW!!!! IT WILL BE MIND BLOWING.

    They have already got the engines for it, just got to work on the rest.

    Some brief specifications for you: It will carry about 300 passengers, its twice as long as an A380 and it does Mach 5

    Watch the video first and then have look around this website, i promise you its worth it.

    Coming soon: your own personal Concorde

    Hi
    Not exactly about the Old Concorde , but still

    Since Concorde retired in 2003, flying long-haul has been a real drag. Even in the fastest business jet, a Cessna Citation X, crossing the Atlantic can take nearly twice as long.

    Now, Aerion, a Reno, Nevada-based company, is developing the Aerion SBJ, a supersonic business jet that flies at speeds up to Mac 1.6. This is much faster than any current civilian aircraft but a bit short of Concorde’s Mach 2.
