The story of Concorde (Concord?) has been told many times, but the story-telling ability and humour of Thoughty2 makes for a riveting video. Watch out for the gag about the sonic boom!

Ultimately it came down to money, the airline industry figured it could make more money out of first class travel in general rather than the luxury service that was Concorde. Sad though, it represented a real feat of engineering and its legacy is tarnished forever over a single safety incident, that wasn’t even strictly the plane‘s fault.
