>After reaching takeoff speed, the tyre of the number 2 wheel was cut by a metal strip (a wear strip) lying on the runway, which had fallen from the thrust reverser cowl door of the number 3 engine of a Continental Airlines DC-10 that had taken off from the same runway five minutes previously.

A burst tire shouldn't cause a plane to explode.

>>101363726
the debris from said burst tire being slung into your airframe at 140m/s and the rupturing your fuel tanks will do it

boeing is safe and effective

This wasn't even the end, they were making a recovery and then 9/11 happened and it ruined the travel industry.

Now the current niggers of France and jeets of Britain cannot replicate this mystical technology.

Airbus is the safest way of travel at the moment, while all its competitors are crushed under MBA suits and incompetency. There are tons of websites around to check if the flight is boeing or airbus after numerous scandals that resulted in no consequences for boeing. And even normies are trying to avoid boeing. So france didn't seem to forget engineering, but everyone else did.

When??
>Did the french forgot how to do engineering?
I guess so. When they decided that placing the expansion tank directly over the distributor was a good idea in a car design, you know they have room for improvements. Adding two extra pulleys so that they could place the generator to teh side of te engine block was just icing on the cake.

Yes.

It always amazes me how the fuck two shitty metal rays manage to keep a massive vehicle on track. I should probably read about it. It always feels like it's a matter of a very tiny bump and catastrophe happens.

in india, a train derailed because some indians started shitting on the tracks, look it up
>>
>>101364768
It's even more amazing when you consider much heavier and longer american freight trains still run on wooden sleepers
>>
>>101364104
same problem as everywhere else in the west corruption and bribery is rampant and you no longer get funds paid for good work but to make it look good. Then there are the business types who ruin good engineering legacy by being retards and getting their friends a nonsense job at the board.
>>
>>101364812
Jesus. What if you drop a tiny rock on the track?
>>
>>101365110
that is more likely to kill someone standing near the track than derail the train, but possible if it's big enough and shaped to lift up the wheel

Deindustrialization by moronic CEOs who preferred a quick buck now by outsourcing to cheaper countries instead of keeping factories and knowledge in the country, mainly.

The hardest problem is supposedly keeping the overhead power wire sufficiently tight in order to make the wave motion of the cable not interfere with the pantograph.

Pic related is a 56lb truck tire pressurized to 35psi bursting at a rotational speed of about 70mph.
The Concorde's tire is 200lbs, pressurized to 232psi, and burst at a rotational speed of 250mph.
Force is mass times (velocity squared).

A 737's takeoff speed is half that of a Concorde, and the 737 blew its tires below takeoff speed, so there was less kinetic energy present. Also a 737's tires run at a lower pressure than Concorde so there's less kinetic energy in them. Physics is what it is.
>using Boeing as an example of a safe aircraft
Lol. If it's a Boeing I'm never fucking going. You keep going a tire failing shouldn't damage the plane, how about "the side of the plane shouldn't fucking fall off"

Boeing is the reason I haven't travelled at all for the last year, even for business reasons (I kept making bullshit excuses). Airlines randomly assign boeing at the last minute when the flight was originally labeled as airbus. So I guess I won't be able to visit anywhere outside continental europe for the foreseeable future. Fuck whoever allowed MBA maniacs to run an industry that should have zero tolerence to any engineering mistakes. Fuck this world.

tbqh. the Concorde failed because the sonic boom was too annoying.
Airports started to deny them, because the locals got angry.
>>

One of their previous CEOs bragged that they got rid of anyone who only cared about engineering and didn't care about social issues or the DEI cult.
Now they're having to murder whistleblowers.
>>
>>101366090
The Concorde failed because air traffic dropped massively after 9/11 and the business travel that kept it afloat started using web conferencing instead
