    Back to the Future with Boom
    Back to the Future with BoomIt was late afternoon and the sun was well down below the yard arm, fading into the horizon of concrete and sand, mud bricks and reinforced concrete, desert and metropolis. This was the paradoxical island of Bahrain, my base for the next twelve...

    Thanks @Ken Boddie. I am willing to fly from Europe to America in only one hour. I think it will be possible in some years :-)

    #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!

    Agreed @Dean Owen. 'Boom' also brings back memories of arguments about flight paths and sound barrier noise. 🙉 #1

    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

    I agree we should never take anyone for granted for doing what seems to be an everyday thing! I'm only too happy when people do what they do well!
