Concorde future 'under review'

Concorde future 'under review'

Concorde could be taken out of service following a drop in demand, British Airways has announced.

The carrier said its premium service between London and New York was being reviewed but insisted such a process was "ongoing".

Concorde has been blighted by a rash of problems including the Paris crash in July 2000 in which 113 people were killed.

Concorde loses part of rudder

Yet another rudder incident today.

Concorde loses part of rudder

NEW YORK (CNN) -- An Air France Concorde lost a piece of a rudder during a flight from Paris to New York on Thursday but landed safely and on schedule.

It was the sixth time since 1989 that a Concorde has experienced a rudder breakup, said British Airways, the only other airline flying the supersonic jet.
