AND FINALLY: Supersonic jet failure

Mini Concorde flops.

Just months after announcing that is had commenced work on its new state-of-the-art Florida campus would-be Mach 1 plus business jet builder Aerion has flopped on the runway citing financial issues.  It has closed the business.  See BTN 1 February.

Which goes to show how advanced the Anglo/French Concorde designers were in the 1960s.  But no money problems!

NEWS FROM YAHOO: Quiet supersonic jet maker Aerion abruptly shuts down.

AND THE AERION WEB SITE:  If it is still working?  (OK Sunday 09:00 BST).
