    because every random stupid wingnut remark  clearly has to be true. I guess you worship at the altar of the NRA and believe everything they've ever said also?

    I'd say you've spent too many years invested in the fantasy of taking down an airline with a single bullet (on the first try) and making that claim to other people to give up on it.

      Metal strip in Concorde crash 'off US jet'
      By Patrick Bishop

      A 17-INCH metal strip suspected of having caused the tyre blowout that triggered the Air France Concorde disaster may be from a jet belonging to the American carrier Continental Airlines.

      A similar piece was found missing from engine cowling on a Continental DC-10 which took off from Charles de Gaulle airport minutes before the July 25 crash which killed 113 people. The part was said not to be vital for the DC-10's safety.

      You can't doubt that the Concorde crashed , you can't doubt that the cause of the crash was a little bit of metal that poked a hole in a tire .

      A 50 cal round will do as much or more damage as that little bit of metal sitting on the runway .

        However IIRC correctly the Concords had unique tire problems because  because they were very small and fast rotating for a plane of that size.  After it was punctured, the tire delaminted and sent a large chunk of rubber ripping through the wing.  

        Plane tires blow out all the time BTW

        •  More abuse ? (0+ / 0-)

          The Concorde was brought down by a small piece of metal laying on the runway . A 50 cal can and will do more damage than a small piece of metal laying on the runway .

          Plane tires blow out all the time BTW
          Do you want to get into how many and why ? And the damage caused by ? Or do details like that cause you to become abusive ?

        •  50 cal to the blades past V1 ... (0+ / 0-)

          Here, a Training Captain on widebody twin-jets for a major British airline talks us through the hazards faced during an airliner take-off.

           11:ENGINE FAILURE

          Engine failure is the biggest worry on take-off; it can occur at any time. Slower than V1 you abandon the take-off, remembering you have reduced reverse thrust available to aid braking.
