and just where are the aircraft, TODAY???  They are sitting in the
museums, and Scrap Yards of England and France, as they were NOT
Economically Viable, and LOST money every year they operated.
They cost millions to maintain, and never had a Positive Cash Flow
when they were flying...  just another Failed Europeon Product....

What's going on here, kids? Give it a rest! Both the Concord and the
shuttle are splendid examples of engineering and scientific
achievement. They've been the learning platforms by which the whole
world has learned enough to do even better in the future.

If you really feel a need to argue local/regional superiority, at
least keep to "My/our solar heat is better than your solar heat".

Sheesh!

But as a Brit I think it is universally accepted that your solar heat
is much better than ours.   In winter you have snow and sun, in summer
you have hurricanes and sun, in England we have year round grey skies
and 30 minutes of sun.......per year.

I'd be glad to trade half of my share of summer sunshine for half of
your share of winter gulfstream. There are times when grey skies would
be a gift here.

Heh - in my area we don't get hurricanes. We have spring tornados
instead, and you're welcome to all of them!

Unless you're living in a metro area, you should still be able to
collect solar heat.
