Concorde: The End of an Era

Air France and British Airways have announced that Concorde is to go out of service from October this year. This truly is, as the press release put it, the 'End of an Era'.

Despite some recent problems due to the age of the plane, Concorde has remained the cutting edge of Civil Aviation for it's lifespan.

I have never had the chance to fly on Concorde, and it doesn't look as if I ever will. I sincerely hope that we will one day see a successor, though I doubt it. Any successor would need to be much more environmentally sound than Concorde, though.
