Anybody of you guys ever had the experience of going supersonic? Since they retired the Concorde, the chances of experiencing this are slimmer than ever. Well, maybe not “ever”. I’m sure the chances are better than 100 years ago. But slim nonetheless. I heard that there’s a new company building a new supersonic passenger jet that is supposed to be deployed in a few years. But I also vaguely remember similar announcements in the past, so who knows.
It seems Chuck is destined to stay stuck at subsonic speeds with the rest of us for a while longer.
In other news: I already mentioned this, but this weekend there is going to be the “Austrian Airfest” and the “Aviation Expo Austria” here in my own little hometown of Bad Vöslau. If anybody makes it there, I will be in the Aviation Expo Area, which is part of the Airfest. Friday is only for registered professional visitors, but on Saturday and Sunday the Expo area is open to all Airfest visitors! Come and find my table! I don’t know where exactly I will be located, but the area is not that big. Hope to see some of you there!
