cool things with wheels, since 2006
I've taken about four airplane rides in my life. I didn't fly the Concord but i did see it take off from JFK. Had a perfect airport view of it. Pretty sensational thing to witness. That big bird just was up and gone. Just like that.
I flown hundreds of times internationally and domestic in almost every type of commercial prop and jet aircraft built. Yup even the Boeing 377 Stratocruiser when my father worked for Pan Am. I've seen the Concorde at JFK but could never quite justify the ticket cost to save 3 hours.
That's a great video. I didn't realize that the Concorde flew at such high altitude. It looks very stable at Mach 2, with regular dining service. It must have been an amazing experience.
