NEW “RETURN TO FLIGHT” SECTION ONLINE
Former Concorde engineer (B2 certified) Ricky Bastin discusses the central issues around return to flight (RTF) on our brand new RTF section.
As this section is so fundamental to our central aim, we will continue to expand it with further relevant information. We would also invite your opinions and comments regarding the technological and logistical issues surrounding RTF on our facebook page.
We continue to firmly believe that the Great British public and the wider world deserve to have the opportunity to see Concorde flying and, to this day, their are no technological reasons whatsoever why this ambitious aim cannot be achieved.
There have been, and continue to be, many detractors to this process. Incredible though it may seem, there are people who would prefer Concorde to remain firmly grounded never to be seen in the air again. We believe these people and/or organisations are wrong and at odds with worldwide opinion.
We make no denial of the technological and financial challenges posed by RTF, but whatever the obstacles, SCG pledges that we will never give up fighting for RTF until it no longer becomes technologically possible for Concorde to fly.
Please keep in touch on Facebook and Twitter.Continue Reading
