Two weeks ago a British Airways Concorde took off from JFK but had to
return due to some non-radio-transmitted problem. I saw it come back
in from the Atlantic Ocean for landing. I was very curious about
whether the fuel is dumped before landing as not doing so would seem
to be a major safety risk.

I'm sure someone here knows the answer to this question and I would
like to thank you in advance.
