^^To me, the grounding of Concorde felt like the end of advancement in consumer aerospace technology. Like we'd hit the Tower of Babel of economics, at least with jet engines.

High bypass engines of today made the types used on the Concorde obsolete for that role. That happened while the plane was in development I think. It was ahead of its time, but also behind its time.

as i understand it, that applies to the subsonic engines used on high-volume planes rather than supersonic transport

variants of the olympus engines used in the concorde are still in use today

He wasn't back then. He apparently had a brain thing after Hercules ended and went full-bore born-again.

*sigh*

I had to google why you would say that. I didn't know.

Hercules was a cool/funny TV show 20 YEARS AGO! and I put a lightsaber on it.
