Concorde


#840

I need concorde in the game, it is so beautiful!
Gets my vote any day!


#841

500th vote!


#842

concorde would be a great time to add now as people want to do long haul flights but cant but with the concorde a long haul flight would be done with a short haul flight time!


#843

100% agree entirely. With the addition of Global, the Concorde is the next logical step.


#844

This plane can help speed up our long haul flights so that we don’t have to wait for that long to reach the destination.


#846

My dad got to fly it once. He said it was the shortest time he ever spend on a trans-ocean flight ever. He also said it was a super tight squeeze.


#847

we should totally get Concorde in IF. Would be nice to reduce the travel time by a few hours from KJFK to EGLL. The Concorde has a top speed of 1354 mph!

What’s the Boeing 2707?


#854

It was going to be Boeing’s supersonic cruised, but the program was cancelled after the attacks on 9/11 and rising fuel prices. Airlines didn’t want fast, they wanted efficient, and so Boeing made the 787.


#855

You’re thinking of the Sonic Cruiser. That came after the news Concorde was going to be retired, so Boeing came up with this design to potentially replace it. May I mention that it cruised at M .98, so not even supersonic?

The 2707 was Boeing’s concept in the 60’s during the supersonic airliner race. It never got past a full scale wooden mockup because the technology wasn’t enough at the time and the American taxpayer didn’t want to put more money into it, so funding was cut.


#856

Lockheed L 2000 was also participating during supersonic airline race. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_L-2000


#857

I didn’t put it in the poll because the design lost to Boeing 2707.


#858

I believe this was announced at the FDS conference or so my friend says.


#859

Your friend is wrong then. The Concorde has not been officially announced, and probably won’t be for the foreseeable future ;)


#860

Uhh… that’s where your wrong. (Isn’t official but came from a mod.)
