Concorde Week | The crash of Air France 4590

In today’s final episode, We hear the story of what really brought down Air France flight 4590, the only Concorde ever to crash, and widely regarded as the end of the Concorde program. 

The figurative and literal demise of Concorde is often referred to as a travesty, and not just to us aviation types. Businesspeople and wealthy globetrotters all were sad to see it go, the general populace of England And France lost an Icon of their countries abilities, and I think we can all agree that ending the program is akin to taking a giant metaphorical step backwards. 

Unfortunately though, there’s nothing you and I can do to bring Concorde back, but I think it’s important that we all know the real story behind what happened that fateful day in July 2000, and why Concorde was pulled from service the way it was.
