    #11 @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza thank you for adding what you did. One thing that stood out, "Survivors guilt." I traveled by train from Erie Pennsylvania to Denver Colorado (I had a fear of flying, so I took the train for 31 hours), anyhow, I would ask others I met why they were traveling long distance instead of flying? One man told me he was in line to board the DC 10 which took off out of Chicago Ohare in 1979 and crashed, killing all aboard. He gave up his space to another man because the flight was over booked. That crash, the man and all aboard affected his psyche for years and he was still unable to fly in 2012. Thank you for adding the security measures all should take. I'm sure that panic does keep many from thinking clearly.

    @Oliver McGee#9 Thank you for writing in english about such a traumatic event that happened this week. From the whole episode, there are countless lessons to be taken, going from the 3 players that got injured and could not do the flight and now they are alive (how many times we blame ourselves and others (god) for small unfortunate events (in the case of the players = an injury) but those sometimes avoid a much bigger ones. Anyway, it is great to see all the global support for the team and the families so far, the typical "faith in the human race restored". As I read a lot about this fatality in Portuguese/Spanish , one thing that stuck in my mind was the flight attendant's report (one of the 6 survivors) that said in the final seconds of the crash, many got in panic mode (which is a normal thing to do due to the circumstance) and even stand up and unbelt. The flight attendant said he just survived , first : Because of "luck" and Second: Because he followed the emergency procedure all the way (fetus position and had a suitcase between his leg for absorbing the possible impact), I think that is an important info/lesson to share with anyone who flies.

    Here's the exclusive take inside my post shown now in bold - "this aircraft was not suitable for a (1,867 miles or 1,623 nautical miles) 3,005 kilometers flight (performing as LMI-2933, en route from Santa Cruz (Bolivia) to Medellín (Colombia). Maximum Range of the LAMIA Bolivia Avro RJ85 airliner is 1,808 miles (or 1,570 nautical miles or 2,909 kilometers) using standard fuel). Everything converges to a total engine failure due to lack of fuel!"

    "For American readers, though, what happened today is positioned to be hauntingly similar in scale and cultural impact to the plane crash of the Marshall University football team in 1970. That accident is considered the deadliest tragedy affecting a sports team in American history," reports Forbes.

    Boom isn't the only group trying to bring back supersonic flights to the commercial airways. A group called Concorde Club says it has enough money to restore a Concorde jet for use in air shows and for private charters, with plans to resume flights sometime in 2019. Airbus has also filed a patent for its own supersonic jet that can supposedly go four times the speed of sound. And a Boston-based company Spike Aersospace is looking to build an $80 million supersonic jet that will be filled with embedded video displays rather than airplane windows.

    That was such an interesting read, @Javier beBee. Some years ago I heard Oprah Winfrey talking about Skype and saying it was like 'The Jetsons' when she was a child; 'We are "The Jetsons" now' she said. This is the next step! I remember when I was little fantasizing with my friends about what it would be like when we grew up, we'd be old women telling our kids that they were lucky to go to school in a helicopter, 'when I was a child, we were all squashed up in the back of one little car!' Well, that didn't happen, but I may yet be saying something similar to my grandchildren!

    #4 50K feet, wow.. that's higher than the average plane flies by about 10K ft or so? I can't imagine piloting a plane with turbulence. I'm sure they get used to it because they go in and out of turbulence much more than someone like me that doesn't fly often. A glass of wine helped me the last time ;-)) We once hit turbulence coming back from Ft. Lauderdale Fl, the plane kept dropping then coming back up- it sounded like we were hitting boulders in the sky, lights were shaking, I was shaking and this went on for almost 20 minutes. I was so glad when we landed.

    Hi Lisa. Thanks for the quiver of quirky questions, I think? 🤔 My best answers are as follows: approx 50k ft; no you don't feel the boom inside the plane, it's the poor cows on the ground in the middle of nowhere that tend to be scared milkless; if you're feeling sick, think of the poor pilot; think of turbulence as nature's way of telling you you shouldn't be trying to work on a flight (no chance of hitting the correct keys or putting pencil to paper) and that you should sit back and enjoy the free roller coaster ride; yes pilots need special training 'cause they are special people - just ask any pilot. Hope this helps on your next flight. If not then perhaps try a couple of glasses of 'cough medicine', before, during and after? 💥 ✈️ #3

    I remember seeing photos of the concord years ago @Ken Boddie, this is exciting news. I clicked on the link you provided, how many feet is 18,000 meters? Are their any drawbacks to flying on a Concord boom, IE: motion sickness or other? I have a fear of flying even though I do fly if I have to. I avoid it if I can (yes, I admit, my phobia is bad). My fear is of turbulence- many fear taking off and landing. I'm not fond of it but it feels so freaky to be soaring with 150 plus passengers in a big plane, so to get somewhere in half the time would be ideal. Will pilots need special training? Thanks for sharing, this was interesting news!

    Concorde was a real pleasure. I remember being just glued to the Mach meter up front, and a cheese trolley! Luxury as it was back then, it is nothing compared to Singapore Airlines/Emirates etc business class now. I wish Boom luck, but they need to change the name pronto - to Swift Jet or Sonic Air

    Hi @Javier beBee, I specifically specialize in producing expert high-impact breaking news content that will significantly grow beBee's user base and engagement, as I did at the early stages of LinkedIn Pulse. We can do the same for BeBee, bridging the narrowing gap between conventional and social media at this juncture for BeBee. I specifically specialize in this, especially given BeBee's unfeathered freedom for reporting on breaking news, which I typically do. We perhaps in the near future could build a Breaking News Hive to further facilitate beBee's growth. Warmly, Oli
