      It was very profitable once they made it a luxury liner, if you could afford the $15-20K round trip ticket.

          Looks are not everything. The range and fuel burn on the Tu-144 was fucking horrid, and it could only fly one pointless Commie route from Leningrad to Almaty, which it did for what, a year? It is not a testament to man's knowledge or progress; it is a copy just like everything else from the mongrelized East that is intended to be showy when there is absolute shit underneath. At least Ilyushin has built some capable aircraft with longevity.

                Because the Soviets produced so much that there's vast fleets of it just sitting around waiting to be used. Not because it's vastly superior.

                >Neolibwral capitalism shit Tier production is just cosmically MOGGED
                Are you fucking high? Look at all the Iraqi Migs and Sukhois that got facefucked in air-to-air combat by Iran in the Iraq-Iran War. F-14 Tomcats (first flight 1970) were eating Mig 21/23 (first flight 1968) alive and the Migs were only shooting down F4 Phantoms (first flight 1958) that operated at way lower altitudes as spotter planes for the F-14s. Iran only shot down 4 F-14s in the whole war, but F-14s shot down almost 100 Iraqi Migs and Su-20/22 of comparable eras. That's 25 to fucking 1 losses my dude, the Soviet planes were the ones getting mogged.

                Not to mention it's only taking 0.5% of neoliberal capitalism's war capacity to bleed the entire Russian military to death in Ukraine. Russia hasn't had a single day of air superiority since the Western air defenses arrived, and most of those are old systems that the West was retiring which is why ammo stockpiles are so low for them. Same thing for the ground attack missiles- HIMARS was literally on its way to the scrap heap when we pulled them out of the dumpster to send to Ukraine and the Russians haven't stopped whining about Western equipment since our trash showed up.

                If Russia were to get into a conflict with the US their only option would be nukes, otherwise they'd get fucking steamrolled and US GI naggers would be raping Russian woman from Moscow to St. Petersburg within 6 months of commencing "special military operations in Moscow".

      Let's approach it from a different angle. If there is no market for a supersonic flight, why should the government subsidize it? What benefits does a "faster than normal but not fast enough to make a difference" flight serve? There is demand for fast travel. If tomorrow teleporters were invented, people would pay BIG for them. The problem with the Concorde wasn't the cost.

        >take this from us

        it was completely subsidized by government funds during entire operational career with 2 different countries. (and see )
        That was the main reason it was cancelled.
        the noise/fuel inefficiency per-passenger-mile arguments were not the primary reasons but also contributed (especially in U.S. overland routes where noise regulations put a stop to the 1960s Boeing-Lockheed sst programs)

        Part if it was they got fucked over by new US sound regulations at the time. But despite how nice it is, it just isn't the time for it I guess. Planes at one point also had issues with being too big and not being able to use their space economically. I do hope supersonic travel will be a normal thing at some point. A lot of aircraft tech hasn't taken off in the public sector despite being technically feasible.

        I wish Congress weren't naggers about the Boeing 2707. It was clear the Concorde mogged them and they never let it down.

    Because modern industry is garbage... All new robots and cnc machines are made to last a couple years or hours until they become useless or a pain in the ass to maintain.. older machines still work nowadays, even pre ww2 and they take much more abuse. Now everyone just thinks about profits saving in every corner. Im sure the chinks dont even know what type of material they use for their builds, hence why most chinesium alloys are like butter. Theres much more behind even metal than most people can think of. Everything today is made to fail for someone to profit..

        You need it to be really thin so that it's aerodynamic, and you need to burn a lot more fuel for it to fly at the intended speed. It has to be like that to fly mach 2. Only if they used a radically different fuel source and radically innovative engine/motor(?).

        Until they figure that out they won't have a reasonable mach 2 plane.

    Concorde was impressively powerful and fast, but wildly inefficient in terms of the amount of fuel burned per passenger. The design was horribly outdated even as it was first entering service, much like the glorious XB-70 Valkyrie bomber which it shared a lot of design features with.

    There's quite a few companies trying to bring back supersonic transport, but the main issue has been noise pollution. There's a company right now trying to avoid that by just flying so high it's not audible at ground level. We'll see. A lot of these companies have been "5 years away from commercial flights" since 1995.

      Assuming it was even a single project, or even a real flight project and not a black budget byline, the public would still never get any info about Aurora because whatever they were working on it most likely worked and is either an ace in the hole for WWIII or wildly violates a shitton of treaties, if not both.

    I was born in the 90s, so i have very few pre 9/11 memories, but i do remember how cool technology seemed. I remember my dad got me a book about the Concorde. Flying seemed like a cool experience back then. He went to England for a business trip and brought back a book about how they made the Chunnel. He visited a bunch of places in England, Scotland, and France. I would look at the pictures a lot. Seemed really cool and not like it is now. Everything seemed cool before 9/11.

        Hahaha. I didn't mean like that. Feats of engineering were celebrated. My dad worked as an engineer so may be that's why i thought that.

        May be i was just ignorant to non whites, but England and France were respected at least by everybody i knew. Now they are demonized even though they made a lot of great things. The "hate" for England and France i was exposed to was just banter/jokes. It wasn't malicious.

    Too bad the tech died out before they could develop trans pacific capable aircraft. That's basically the only other niche supersonic flight has with MUH NOISE OH NO I'M LITERALLY FARTING AND SHIDDING MY PANTS BECAUSE I HEARD A NOISE controlling the law.
    A sonic boom isn't really that annoying. You notice it for sure but it's nothing more than something that makes you think "oh I didn't' know they were having a launch today".

    Turns out super sonic engines from the late 60s burn fuel like a hobo on a ham sandwich, and the slim design needed to be aerodynamic at that speed means a small cramped cabin that can only fit 100 people. It’s a good concept but the tech wasn’t there to make it mainstream yet.

    The Hoobohomo obsession with safety. We know it all too well down here. We've reached a point where if it isn't 99.9999% safe, and you can't be wrapped in bubble wrap or get a lil blister on your pinky, then it's "investigated" and then banned.

    it broke windows on land so all routes needed to be over the sea. it was intended to fly to post brit and post french colonies to project might but finally only could fly only one overerexoloited route where obviously had no any sense to operate it.

    cuz it wasn't economically practical, they were more expensive to build than normal jets, used alot more fuel than a normal jet, and required alot more maintenance as well. They were a novelty, but not a sustainable one.

    It wasn't fast enough to justify the cost. NY to London in 3hrs is nice, but it still requires the trip be the previous day, or your meeting be an evening meeting. Conversely, if I have a 10am meeting in DC or Boston, I can leave NY at 7am and be there with more than enough time. The sweet spot for a "fast" flight is 45-90 minutes; anything longer is too slow.

    You mutt cunts took it from us, just like everything good, empires an shit. Just because it was a euro thing you made up shitty protectionist regulations that essentially destroyed supersonic commercial before it got started. It's very fucking funny that now US companies are about to get in the game, those regulations all seem to be up for revision. Mutts are sad insecure cunts, simple as.

    Those who can afford to fly on one will just charter a Gulfstream so they do not have to wait in line with the plebs. Also they can use airports closer to their preferred destination. Commercial air travel is just the equivalent of what greyhound was in the 50s only much more of a hassle.

    Bae / Aerospatiale didn’t want to make any new ones and didn’t want to extend the life of the current fleet. The safety record & carrier profitability arguments are just noise, it all comes down to a cost cutting decision by accountants.

    >"The 2010 trial involving Continental Airlines over the crash of Flight 4590 established that from 1976 until Flight 4590 there had been 57 tyre failures involving Concordes during takeoffs, including a near-crash at Dulles Airport on 14 June 1979 involving Air France Flight 54 where a tyre blowout pierced the plane's fuel tank and damaged the port-side engine and electrical cables, with the loss of two of the craft's hydraulic systems." - wiki

    Seats cost $10,000 a piece. People who can afford those prices can also afford private chartered flights so the concord probably wouldn’t do well today anyway.
