    Fixed.

    The sad part is we’ve been asleep for the past 40 years. If you’d asked the average person in the 70s/80s most would have sworn we’d be skipping around like this by now.

    Come on, you know as well as I do the only reason Concorde was canned was costs. As I recall, they were losing money even on fully booked flights; isn't all the profit in the cargo hold?

    Me too. Closest I got was watching it take-off from the boundary fence at Heathrow in 1995.
    I’ll never forget that, that’s for sure

    and don't forget this bit

    In a big leap for the electrification of aviation, an Extra Aircraft aerobatic plane performed its maiden flight with an electric powertrain. The crucial component was a world record motor from Siemens. Weighing a mere 50 kilograms, the motor has an output of 260 kilowatts, resulting in an unparalleled power-to-weight ratio.
