How airport screenings have changed since the pandemic

Soumis
 
If airport screenings had changed because of the pandemic, Gene SirLouis hadn’t noticed, and he’d flown several times since the covid-19 outbreak.

There, passengers whose final destination was in Texas had to fill out a form for self-quarantining, he recalls. The rest were free to go. “[The… (www.washingtonpost.com) Plus d'info...

Why the American Concorde Was a Supersonic Failure

Soumis
 
The 1960s were a heady time for air transportation. Not only were jet airliners all the rage—so too were SSTs, or supersonic transports. The Soviet Union had been the first to enter into the supersonic jet airliner age with their massive—and problematic—Tu-144 design. The French-Anglo Concorde project would follow just a few months later, and benefited from a more mature design, leaving the United States in the lurch.
