I don't want to brag, but 1944 we already had flight times to London under 23 minutes, but did not make it over the pond yet. The service aboard was said to be nonexistant and the landings were very rough.

Back to the topic: The Concorde was the last dinosaur of the 'at all cost or nothing' way of thinking. It sipped away too much fuel and needed too much maintainance for too few passengers to be anywhere near economic. And let's not forget the safety problems the aging birds were developing.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
