FILE - In this May 24, 1976 photo an Air France Concorde SST lands at Dulles International Airport to inaugurate commercial passenger service between Paris and Washington. Earlier British Airways Concorde landed from London. When the Concorde started flying in the 1970s, hopes were high that the traveling masses would soon streak through the air faster than the speed of sound or soar in planes that hurtled like missiles above the earth's atmosphere. Instead, jetliners still look the same as they did five decades ago and travel times have barely budged. (AP Photo)
