Speed of sound is silenced
Concorde, the world's first supersonic passenger jet, will be grounded in the autumn after a plunge in passenger numbers and a string of high-profile technical problems.
British Airways and Air France will announce the decision today, following months of deliberation with technical advisers from Airbus.

Well, I've never travelled in a Concorde, but I'm a wee bit sad to note that it'll no more take to the skies!

By the way, a trivia question. Do you know why the Concorde's nose is crooked (or bent, pointing towards the ground)?
