Why Did The Concorde Airplane Stop Flying?


The Concorde supersonic jet was the Rolex of aviation. The Concorde was first flown in 21 January 1976 by the British Aircraft Corporation and France’s Aérospatiale. On that day a British Airways Concorde flight flew from London to Bahrain and an Air France Concorde flight flew from Paris to Rio de Janeiro via Dakar.

On April, 10th 2003 both airliners had ended the 27 years of flight that had made it possible to fly from London to New York in 3.5 hours.

In the video below, Vox YouTube channel explains the reasons behind the retirement of the airliner.
