    my God,

    i've seen the creepiest thing ever today!!! did you know that an Air France Concorde crashed near to Paris this morning???

    ok, here's a link to one of the major newspaper from Brasil, i woke up today and read the news... www.uol.com.br/fsp/ the translation to the text below the pic is something like:

    "Concorde from British Airways take off from Hearthrow airport, in London; the company has anounced that were detected some fissures on the wings of its seven Concordes, but afirmed that there were never ever any danger to the passengers"

    man, this is too f$#!ing weird, you wake up at 7:00 am and read something like that, at 10:30 am you read an on line news at bloomberg saying that a Concorde crashed!!! God i'm scared...

    maybe i'm crazy,
    or just too high...

    Yeah, I had the same feelings, but they say that the crash has nothing to do with those fissures. One of the possibiities is that a bird got into the engine and destroyed the turbine (or prop...don't know the english word). Even little birds can do that.

    It's turbine, SH. The Concorde has proven to be an outstandingly safe design over the course of its 25+ years of service. It's really an extraordinary machine. There aren't that many of them around. I had the good fortune to get a close look at one at Oshkosh 10 years ago.

    With respect to the loss of life, it's such a shame all the way around. We'll likely not see another design like the Concorde again. It's sort of like an obseenly expensive, one-off sports car.

    Brett , correct me if I am wrong but I though they made 14 of them and that would be 13 of course . I was watching FOX News and I am positive they said there was 14 . I could be wrong or they might be .

    There are 13 remaining Concordes--14 were built. The relatively small use of service also helps contribute to their safety record--but it's an excellent design.

    I saw the takeoff still on the front page of today's paper. Fire shooting out at least 50 feet behind the aircraft--very creepy.

    It's really shit if it happens to you!

    Not a big flyer here at all!! Only when necessary. I spend a lot of time and money in airport bars before a flight. Seems to help! :

    All i know is if that big bird decides to go down, every is gonna know how pissed off I am that I was on time for my flight!!

    Very sad though. Prayers!
