CONCORDE COULD (AND SHOULD) FLY AGAIN!

Switched is reporting that UK is looking into the return of the Concorde after seven years. 

When I lived in Woodbridge, I was heading for court in Manassas one morning and when I rounded a curve I was so shocked I almost had an accident!  It was the Concorde apparently circling after takeoff or before landing at Dulles.  It is a magnificant aircraft.  I still believe that we in the US could do better but thanks to Sen. Proxmire, we’ll never know.  (Yes I know it was public funding and as a libertarian I am not crazy about that.  But I felt that US should do it not UK/France.  Another conflict for the Conflicted Libertarian!)

The Concorde flies at about Mach 2 (Thanks to this web page for tech stuff!) and flies at 60,000 feet.  That still will show the blackness of space and the curving of the Earth, although not as high as Robert Harrison’s balloon!.  It’s as close as I would get to space!

Yes, its pricey!  But it’s worth a try.  Maybe I’ll see you on the new Concorde on my way to lunch with the young turks of the Tory party!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
