As I said, my uncle worked at Cape Kennedy, yes, he was a 'Septic', it is the moon landings that have been speculated as a fake and I have no recollection of any shuttle having claimed to have landed on the moon, he was working there during the Apollo missions!
It was Cape Canaveal before the assasination of JFK and remained Cape Kennedy in honor of his support of the mission. However the assasination was staged too. He's out bar hopping with Diana, Marilyn, Elvis, Judge Crater, Jimmy Hoffa, Elvis and 6 million Jews.
The shuttle, that I have read on this forum, has not been speculated as fake, of course it wouldn't because the Russians developed a shuttle also, it was posted, to the effect, that the Yanks purposely blew up a shuttle
And ..... it is said that the Russians had the first supersonic airliner, namely that the Tu-144 flew before Concorde. Sure the Tu-144 was supersonic and it flew before Concorde but the only way the early Tu-144's could maintain supersonic speed was to permanently have the afterburners on which meant the fuel tanks emptied PDQ which, effecctively, meant that whilst it looked like an airliner it couldn't go anywhere!!!
The Brits & French had the first supersonic airliners in service!
The BA ones were built in Filton whilst the AF ones were built in Toulouse, the one that remains in PDQ airworthy condition is parked in Toulouse. Wikipedia reveals some (frightening) facts about the (failed) Tu-154, if it operated Moscow/Almaty/Moscow then it was a later variant, it might have flown the route supersonic however unless flying over 'wasteland', such as the BA Concorde, on it's last flight, breaking the speed record JFK/Seattle by flying supersonic over Northern Canada, it would be shaking buildings and/or breaking windows as it flew over.
The U.S. had in planning the SST, which looked much like the Concord. The project was cancelled because of the huge fuel consumption and the effects of sonic shock. LAX used eminent domain to acquire the neighborhood west of the airport to lengthen the runway for the expectation of the Concord. The streets were still there, but the houses were all leveled last time I was in the area.
Concorde doesn't/didn't use significant amounts of runway, it's only a small aircraft seating 100 passengers, and in the UK it has operated with passengers to/from airports with runway lengths of circa 8,000 feet, LAX has significantly longer runways than 8,000 feet!
