aviation-authority:

We’re going to take you to the edge of space, where the sky gets darker, where you can see the curvature of the Earth, we’re going to travel across the Atlantic twice the speed of sound, faster than a rifle bullet, 23 miles every minute, we’re going to travel so fast we’re moving faster than the Earth rotates and the world will be watching us.
Here we are, October 24th 2003, we can get from London to New York if we want in 3 hours 20 minutes. Tomorrow, October 25th 2003 it’ll take nearly 8 hours.” concorde last flight ;(
