One thing though. I went through the Internet this morning and picked up
a copy of a picture of a Concorde taking off. It must have been Concorde
#7 for British Airways because there was a lot of people standing behind
this gate watching it takeoff. The thing about a 747 behind a Concorde
is that you have the second fastest jet behind the world's fastest jet.
Do any of you remember that ABC movie in 1983 called "Starflight: The
Plane That Couldn't Land"?
	That movie was about the world's newest fastest passenger jet taking
off from Los Angeles to Australia (Estimated flying time: Two Hours).
Imagine the sonic boom on that thing. Anyway, the plane's rockets are
stuck in ON position after collision with some debris. Next stop, outer
space.
	I also read an article about the Concorde being good for about 20 more
years. Can the world really handle that? On British Airways, to be on a
Concorde, it is $5,000 bucks a shot, one way.
