Barely a few hours since this tragedy and I've seen more speculation on TV from people who have no business speculating. Two individuals, one an attorney, the other from an aviation consumer watchdog group got on TV to say that, as a result of this crash, they would never board a Concorde. Neither individual would qualify as having any technical expertise, yet they feel the need to denounce Concorde's age as being a problem. When the interviewer responded, much to my surprise, about all of the other older aircraft operating today, neither could give anything close to a satisfactory answer. With all of these pseudo-geniuses who, 5 hours into the disaster, have all of the answers, why bother with an investigation ?
My definition of cool ? Not trying so hard to be cool.
