Farewell to the real Fireflash...

Postby FZeroOne » Fri Oct 24, 2003 11:14 am

We'll miss you. Its been pointed out more than once over the past few weeks that Concorde was a financial disaster area; something like a modern Faberge egg, made for the few, paid for by the many, and as practical as an alka-seltzer submarine.That still doesn't mean we can't admire them though.I'll leave it to Terry Pratchett for the best tribute to Concorde I can think of, from his book Wings:"It wasn't a thing, it was a bit of shaped sky."
"The power of bakers, the power of artists; even the power of witches! It must be a power given by God... sometimes we suffer for it."- Ursula, Kikis Delivery Service.
