    This reminds me. All of these tree hugging Malthusian fuckwits used the supersonic boom to get Concorde banned. Yet the NASA space shuttle came in at supersonic on every single reentry that it did. And nobody noticed. Nobody noticed the supersonic boom from the shuttle through its whole career.

    Just shows that the boom was a farce

    Roland Garros star 'worried' by jet's sonic boom

    30/09/2020

    Paris (AFP)

    Ukraine tennis star Elina Svitolina said she thought "something bad had happened" when a French fighter jet flew over Roland Garros on Wednesday, breaking the sound barrier.

    The thunderous noise that panicked residents of Paris was caused by the sonic boom, police in the French capital said.

    The military said the jet had been scrambled to go to the aid of another aircraft that had lost radio contact, and was authorised to travel at supersonic speed.

    "Yeah, I heard it. I was a bit worried because I thought something bad happened," said Svitolina after defeating Mexico's Renata Zarazua 6-3, 0-6, 6-2 on the tournament's showpiece Court Philippe Chatrier.

    "I looked at the chair umpire. He was little bit shocked as well because you never know these days what can happen, what's going on.

    "Yeah, it was the airplane, so it was very strange, very loud, like something big dropped."

    The noise, which was heard all over the city and neighbouring suburbs and shook windows, rattled Parisians already on edge after a knife attack outside the former offices of satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo last week that the government has called an act of terror.

    For fuck's sake, Backspin.

    Can you have a day off from polluting every thread with your nonsense, you stupid gullible twat?

    You're as bad as Klongdick. To see the pair of you together stinking out another thread makes my eyes bleed.

    That's a fighter jet at low freaking altitude. Zero comparison to Concorde at 50,000+ feet.

    Fighter jets make a crackling bang because of their shape. Again, totally different.

    You can see the reheat/afterburner, which caused the noisy take-off...and then the sonic boom at altitude...

    1) When the Concorde did its original sales tour, that was when all the crying about the take off noise and the smoke. THAT was before the proper final engine was installed which didn't smoke at all and was quieter.

    2) Its a FUCKING airport. Airports are loud. As if a fucking double decker A380, is fucking quiet. The A380 was really loud and always has been. But it had political protection that the Concorde didnt

    This is Backspin's problem down to a T:

    'A little knowledge is a dangerous thing' - meaning and origin.

    Compounded by going on whackjob websites and swallowing their tripe like the last ladyboy cock he took in Pattaya.

    Used to live right under the flightpath out of Heathrow. It was a majestic sight.

    Why we don’t need an afterburner


    What technological advancements will let the Boom passenger jet fly faster than the Concorde without afterburning?



    Today, we have vastly improved turbofan engines, which can produce enough thrust for supersonic flight while also being quiet and friendly around airport communities.You might wonder, why Mach 2.2? Why not faster, why not slower? We chose 2.2 because it is fast enough to make a massive difference in travel, yet slow enough to require only known, proven basic technologies.


    The speed limiter at Mach 2.2 is related to propulsion and noise regulations: an aircraft needs to be fuel efficient at supersonic cruise yet quiet around airports. To be quiet, large-diameter engines with big fans (high bypass ratios, see Bypass ratio — Wikipedia) are desired. Yet, the faster one cruises, the lower the desired bypass ratio, for increased specific thrust and lower cross-section area. At Mach 2.2, the Boom aircraft can comply with noise regulations and be sufficiently efficient at cruise, thanks to a medium-bypass engine, adapted from the same technology that powers subsonic wide body aircraft. To achieve higher speeds without a significant increase in fuel consumption, a Variable cycle engine would be required — a technology too complex and unproven for a startup to adopt in its first product.

    In this 7 part interview, John Hutchinson discloses a little secret. They were flying Concorde supersonic over the middle east, and nobody noticed.

    The problem with making things up is when you tell it to an expert...

    Concorde engine was the Olympus, originally the -591 and upgraded to the -593. Reheat whacks up the volume and the video is with the -593 production engine.

    The difference between a high bypass engine fitted to modern airliners and the turbofan in terms of noise is chalk and cheese. Add reheat and it's a magnitude increase again.

    So did I...didn't mind the noise of concorde either.

    I'll take it at face value that you some some credentials and aren't basing your expertise on 30 years of subscribing to Popular Mechanics.

    The problem with making things up
    The problem with making that accusation to a Concorde and SST enthusiast.... Nothing I have said or will say is made up. The Concorde had a smokey and louder engine during the sales tour. And both of these ailments were improved. That's a fact I read in this book which I own. And its also in the 2017 BBC documantary

    Are you blind ? The Boomer supersonic airliner is not going to use afterburners at any point in flight. Period.

    Why we don’t need an afterburner

    I found the part. Here at 4:20 of the interview, Hutchinson talks about flying over the middle east supersonic with no fucks given

    He's exhausted the best of us with his doubling down on bullshit - whether it's Samui waste management system and comparing it to NYC when he was proven wrong with favoured nation status deals between the EU and the Philippines being racist etc.... he's like chico on speed.
