@SimonS1 – yes I agree it looks optimistic but it was only seventeen years between the introduction of the first jet airliner and Concorde. If there is enough “push” behind it , it will happen.

No it wasn’t, it was nearer 25 years than 17.

Well if you want to pedantic, the first jet liner, the Comet, flew in 1949 (first commercial flight in 1952). Concorde’s maiden flight was in 1969 – ie. 20 years. Split the difference, gentlemen!!
