Re: AF Concorde- a national disgrace

Plemty of evidence to show that if
1. The maintaince schedule was done correctly
2. Pilots followed their own protocols/ regulations re fuelling, take off procedure, trimming, weather restrictions

.....The plane would have been in a better position and probably not crashed.

That said it was cutting edge technology but became outdated within a few years (look at the cockpit controls and pilot assistance systems). Ok the plane had the worst gliding characteristics and was very uneconomic to fly, but it was an incredible chapter in aviation history.
