The crash of an Air France Concorde in July of 2000 killed 113 people. French authorities blamed the crash on a piece of metal that fell off a Continental Airlines DC-10 that had taken off minutes earlier. It set off a chain of events on the aircraft that ultimately made it crash. Here you see flames coming out of the Concorde seconds before it crashed. The crash basically brought an end to an era of luxury supersonic travel.
