It was a rainy evening across the east coast, and I imagine that the arrival delays into JFK made a diversion necessary. Admittedly, this could also have happened with other types of aircraft. OTOH, I don't think it's a stretch to say that the endurance (i.e. time aloft) of a Concorde is near the bottom of the ladder among transatlantic jet transports in service today. ed ---- Ed Hahn / email@example.com / +1 703 883-5988 The above statement is solely an opinion of the author, and does not express a position or implied warranty by the MITRE Corporation.
