    last crash was caused because debris on the runway from a plane prior to concord taking off...

    how's this for a thought? high speed (literally) high fps high well everything...

    have 2 cameras zip down the runway like a greyhound fake ferret or whatever they use ... and have the computer look for any signs of debris or trouble...

    vs humans going slowly down the runway looking for debris with every take off, no wait they don't.. easier to remove my favourite all time ever plane! The Concord :)

    plausible to do?

    I don't think a Roomba for runways is going to bring back your precious Monarch/B1 bomber with seats. Economics killed it as much as anything. Besides, FOD sweepers already exist.

    I'm thinking KJ6EAD has a point. $3,000 a seat was a bit pricey.
    Who knows, maybe the French have converted their Concords into spy planes, and never told you.
    Maybe they're still out there, ... like Elvis.
