  • The Concorde gave us supersonic transport. But why did this supersonic plane fail? The answer is complicated.

    Concorde was a technological wonder which was taken out of action everywhere because of one crash and the noise. Using that logic, why isn't the regular passenger plane banned as that has crashed thousands of times before and it is also very loud? Gotta love that logic.

    it failed because the powers that be and make our lives miserable by the vote want less mobility for us. plus this jet was not compatible with the fuel saving new turbines that are now common on commercial passenger planes. Have you ever spend a minute watching jets being filled with fuel at any airport? How the amount of fuel cannot be nowhere near the amount given as needed for the distance officially? And how the wings are supposed to carry amounts of fuel that are nowhere near realistic? Modern turbines are self accelerating and after being powered up fuel driven they hardly use any fuel to maintain their maximum exhaust. But to keep us from demanding that technique and to maintain and increase the "exclusiveness " of jet travel this info is kept from the public. Calculate it yourself before you judge, please. You'll see....

    Thank you very much indeed for this historical journey and lesson for those who were not even born during Concorde's active time on this Earth. A truly remarkable time to be part of. And what a lesson we are taught in the process. For, MONEY and PROFIT becomes the route cause of why innovation is truly stifled. Yes, I know you'll tell me there will be innovations along the way, but there's no longevity. Why is it we can't buy a decent audio amplifier that lasts a decade? Why is it our smartphone software support expires after 5 years and its battery can't be replaced so easily? And then you read about some investment banker buying his 15TH 20 MILLION DOLLAR PROPERTY that he has no intention of living in for anymore than 30 days of the year? Well, I wish I could see Concord flying above the skies for all to enjoy and for all to be able to afford, but when all is said and done, we can only smile and say "what a great aircraft, a great innovation and the coming together of engineers".

    Elon Musk has a better idea that can taken you from Los Angeles to Australia in 40 minutes. I like that better. Its basically a rocket ship that's travels in the upper part of the stratosphere and rockets itself to the destination. It will only work for coastal cities because it will have to be far enough because of the noise.

    747 s crashed so many times but nobody banned them, why did they ban concorde just because of 1 crash? 50 years ago in 1970s you can fly supersonic fron london to NY in 3,5 hours, in 2019 its 8 hrs 15 minutes, this is stupid...

      +TheGamingGeek yeah I did, and I also know more about the real reason behind halting supersonic flights. They all talk about economic feasibility and noise concerns in the video. If Air France could maintain Concorde flights more than 20 years and if there are very quite supersonic fighter jets today then both of these reasons are invalid. Maybe countries don't want thousands of supersonic commercial planes flying above for security and air traffic control reasons.

      They didn't stop it for pollution. They stopped it because airbus didn't want to support 14 planes of a certain type. And yes, cruise ships are INCREDIBLY bad for the environment. The fuel is cheap and dirty. It would be much better if they switched over to diesel.

      Hmmm...You are right in a way but that safety aspect should have been built into the play as the subsequent retro engineering proved.

    Hey Vox, don't be like Fox, make some fact checking. The sole and only crash of Concorde wasn't due to a "problem specific to Concorde's tires" but because it hit a titanium alloy strip on the runway lost by the preceding airplane, 5 minutes before, a DC10 operated by Continental Airlines. Both Continental Airlines and John Taylor, one of its mechanics, were found criminally responsible for their part in the disaster in December 2010.

    5:27 The information concerning the cause of Flight AF4590 is not accurate. As with most air travel disasters it was the sum of many small events that summed up at the worst possible moment at the same time (The French BEA Authority have consistently denied the obvious evidence presented in French Courts to avoid embarrassment to the name of Concorde and France):
    1) Air France made faulty maintenance on the landing gear which left the front wheel jammed like a supermarket trolley as it began take off
    2) the plane was overloaded with fuel because the pilots were not made aware by the airport crew of extra baggage checked in by the passengers
    3) The concorde skidded towards a 747 carrying then-President Jacques Chirac long before it hit the piece of metal from the Continental airlines DC-10 which has been accused as the sole responsible of the crash. There is photographic evidence of the skid marks in the runway
    4) The concorde pilot was forced to take off at a lower speed than V1-V2 to avoid a collision with the 747 carrying the French President, highly suggesting that it was this and not the fire on the engine which caused the plane to stall. Other Concorde pilots have stated losing one engine at the right take off speed would have been survivable.
    Please be careful when oversimplifying. You can be very misleading and this was been observed in other VOX videos (Like the Hong Kong Border where you grossly omitted that it was opium wars that were fought between Britain and China because Britain was making a fortune off drug trafficking into China)
