Concorde - The Greatest Plane Ever Built?

The Concorde is no more. After 30 years of service, the famous jet hit rock bottom after a fatal crash in France that killed all on board and several people on the ground. Since then the fleet has been grounded and officially retired.
One man, Stuart Carter, explains why the loss of the Concorde is the loss of the greatest plane ever built. He details the creation and physics behind the plane which are quite astounding. From its supersonic speed to multiple gas tanks to balance it in the air, the Concord was no ordinary plane.
