Sorry, I don't buy that. Kinloss Spaceport must be a far more realistic a proposition than Concorde return to flight, because it has the potential to earn a huge profit. A single Concorde does not!

Who said anything about stopping at one...........

...Now, you've got me worried...! :shock: :dizzy:
And as the smart ship grew,
In stature, grace and hue,
In shadowy silent distance grew the iceberg too....

Considering the compensation culture we live in now would BAE/British Airways/Rolls-Royce etc. who would have to be on board (no pun intended) for a Concorde to fly, allow passengers to be carried in case something catastrophic happened and they get sued?.

It's very, very doubtful. RR won't support the engines.
