Of course it is stupid, you keep asking and you keep getting told that the UK is a monarchy – every single time you ask. My guess is that you have found something you are correct about and so you have become fixated on a good thing.

And I'm not saying you couldn't place similar allegations at Airbus' feet.

But yes, Boeing's been doing this for decades.

And having the taxpayers pick up the bill so the wealthy could fly, yes, if you have money, you can have a jet fly three times the speed of sound, but better is: have the taxpayers pay for for you.

And you don't have to give a rat's azz about the people who had to put up with the noise or a the pollution it dumped into the atmosphere either, after all, it was windy and the pollution would just blow around, eh?

Concorde was not successful commercially, no matter how hard you stomp your hooves, Chubby.

I can see your ideological issue. If NASA and the USAF had ever received any public funding whatsoever you'd probably hate them too.

FYI, concord was NOT subsidised when it was on commercial service you all your lying does is prove you lie.

Three quarters of a billion gross profit would see my through until retirement nicely

It wasn't free.

WWII payments from the UK to the USA didn't finish until 2006.

I don't pretend NASA or the USAF made a profit or that they don't and haven't received tax funds and think that state sponsorship for every passenger did not need to be considered when uttering the word "profit".

PS: funny how the previous qualifying sentence fell off.

Here is the entire quote:

"How much profit did Concorde make for British Airways?

On average Concorde made and operating profit of £30-50 Million a year for British Airways in the boom years where many passengers were travelling first class. British Airways reportedly received £1.75 Billion in revenue for Concorde services against an operating cost of around £1 Billion. Air France made a much smaller profit. "

We have always know you were and are a liar, it's nice that you allow me an opportunity to prove it so frequently.

In the boom years...

And that isn't considering the tax subsidities, billions of dollars from France and the UK, where tax payers picked up one third of the actual cost.

The UK did not come close to covering the actual costs- it was ten cents on the dollar.

And no, it wasn't free: 104,000 Americans died fighting in the European war.
