First off, the Concorde is a cool aircraft, however it probably will not be flying very much longer due to age, and pressurization which leads to metal fatigue (Concorde stretches 8 inches during its trans-Atlantic flight). Second, we already went through this 'ban the Concorde' thing when it was first introduced. Just look at Airways magazine--they did a great article on this. The EU has the same 'stage three' requirements as the US, correct? If so, then won't they have to ban other European made aircraft? As long as the planes are under the stage three noise level, let them fly!!!!!!
