NO! The Concorde was not even Stage II compliant! The Olympus is not hushkittable (is that a word?) because of the afterburner (reheater) imagine putting an extension tube in all that fire!

Alas no, the BAe Concorde is nowhere NEAR being Stage 3 compliant.

Having stood underneath it on take-off from the M25 at Heathrow, (albeit for some strange reason, voluntarily) it probably isn't even Stage 2 complaint. Bar the VC-10 which took off ahead of it on an RAF flight, I don't think I've heard a noisier civilian aircraft.

The F-16s (or whatever they are - they may be F-14s / F-15s) out of Tyndall AFB in Florida where I live are only slightly noisier, and may only be a touch louder.....

I believe Concorde has exemptions from most places it goes, mostly because of its spectacular nature, but also because it flies relatively so little compared to other aircraft.

The Concorde is the only aircraft exempt from these regulations.

Concorde is of course exempt from most noise regulations, but it is also not allowed to fly into or out of most airports in the continental U.S., and when permitted to do so, must travel at subsonic speeds to avoid the sonic booms it generates.

I say long live noisy aircraft! It adds to the excitement of take-offs. This coming from a guy who was at the end of the runway when an Air France Concorde roared overhead once...it nearly shattered my eardrums, as well as all the windows in my car! Vive la Concorde!!!
