Take-off crash 'n' burn didn't kill the Concorde, it was just too bloody expensive to maintain

Re: the disgusting smell of jet fuel

None of which is unique to Concorde, as a trip to JFK or La Guardia will quickly prove. Airports stink of Jet-A. Live and work elsewhere.

Take-off noise from Concorde was earsplitting though, I'll grant.

No louder than the Phantom flyby I was "privileged" to experience in Grande Prairie one year at an airshow. Ears rang for hours afterward.
