Concorde to return

News today that the Concorde, another example of publicly-funded largesse, should be back on the North Atlantic route in the spring, following a safety upgrade and interior refurbishment. Grounded after the Paris air disaster which claimed 113 lives last July, modifications to the plane may earn a certificate of airworthiness so that British Airways and Air France can resume the luxury supersonic service.
